Native to Chile and Argentina, this lovely mat-forming plant throws out tufts of glaucous green leaves from which arise umbels of deep rose flowers. Although it is very frost hardy it must have very good winter drainage, and makes an ideal container or alpine house plant. Very few seeds.
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.
