Description

This diminutive, but most attractive high alpine plantain must be the smallest there is. In early spring, from a tiny, hard, hedgehog-like cushion of small rosettes, arise attractive, almost stemless flower heads, which carry bright yellow anthers. The distribution includes the rocks and hills of the coastal Mediterranean, Pyrenees-Orientales, Bouches-du-Rhône, Alpes-Maritimes, Corsica, and extends across Spain and Portugal, Italy, Sardinia, Sicily and Algeria.

Sowing Advice

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.
