A very rare plant making a small rosette of thick pointed leaves, from which grow short stems bearing upwards-facing ivory-white bellflowers. For growers wishing to see it in the wild, it can be found at high altitudes in the Caucasus, Georgia, the Russian Federation, including Checheno-Ingushetia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachay-Cherkessia, and North Ossetia!
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.
