    This is a lovely little plant, masses of very pretty purple and lilac flowers make a ice mat in the alpine bed. It arrived well packed and delivery was speedy. I would definitely recommend D’Arcy Everest, having shopped with them for a few years now.

    Only just planted, so can’t comment on flowering. Obviously care is taken in packing, but I don’t like the very light pieces of whatever, plastic? organic? that’s put over the plants in the box. They fly everywhere and/or stick electrostatically to anything handy.

    Carefully packaged and arrived as a good healthy plant. Settled in well to my alpine trough and already starting to delight with its characteristic coloured flowers.
