Bone hardy and bearing pure white flowers, this attractive Balkan endemic has a conservation status of Critically Endangered. Populations are fragmented, with few individuals, which occur very rarely in Meadows in coniferous forests and dwarf pine societies mainly in the Rila mountains between 1500 – 1700 m of altitude. The wider general distribution has more recently been extended to include loci in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, R Macedonia and Serbia.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
