Quite similar to A. obtusifolia, this diminutive plant has rosettes only to 1.5cm across with narrower leaves and flowers are usually salmon pink and only occasionally white. It is native to the Central Balkans where it lives in screes, moraines and short grassland, at 2000-3000m. Very easy to accommodate, it simply requires a well-drained, acidic soil.
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.
