From the high Alps comes this very rare plant bearing tiny congested, upright stems, packed with tiny leaves and small yellow flowers. One of these, a pan full the size of a very large cabbage heart cut in half, won a prize at a recent Alpine Show!
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.
