One of the very loveliest alpines, often winning prizes at shows, this gem makes tight domes of hairy grey-green leaves, beneath almost stemless sessile white flowers in spring. It is of easy culture in crevices of sandy soil or pot culture in an Alpine house. Very, very few seeds ever collected.
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
