Cross-shaped pink to lilac flowers with bright yellow anthers open from April to July, on tight low carpets of small green leaves. These attractive plants come from from Eastern Albania and adjacent Yugoslavia in alpine grassland, where they develop as slowly creeping mats.
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.
