Cupped-shaped yellow flowers, with orange markings at the base of each petal, open on low compact, cushions. This rare British native plant resides in high places on the Scottish mountains, as well as growing at lower levels in Scandinavia and right up to Svalbard in the Arctic Circle. Suitable for screes, rock gardens or dry slopes, its blooming time is from May to June.
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.
