New and rarely-offered, this fabulous alpine-house, rockery or wall plant produces solid cushions of tiny velvety silvery-grey leaves, which disappear in spring under sheets of thousands of tightly packed, fragrant golden flowers, and is as choice as you can get with a spring alpine. It is native to the high mountains of Greece, Bulgaria and Romania.
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.
