Rarely seen or grown, this perfumed treasure forms a mat of fine, grass-like foliage, above which open deeply-fringed, pale lavender or pink flowers. These are borne over a long period in summer and such is the delicious fragrance of the blooms they can be detected at a considerable distance in its rocky mountain home, where it grows in arid grasslands, woodlands and heathlands. In the garden plant it near the house where the fragrance can waft indoors or otherwise use at the front of a border or on a rock garden.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
