Almost stemless lavender-blue powder puff flowers open on hummocks of deep green lustrous foliage made of glossy spoon-shaped leaves spreading outwards forming dense mats, giving this little beauty year round appeal. It does best in gritty, sharply drained soil, for example in a rock garden, scree bed, alpine house, or trough, as it is native to rock and scree areas in the mountains of the Mediterranean. Very few good seeds 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.
