Hairy green rosettes, deep pink flowers.
This spring flowering Androsace is fairly quick growing maturing in just a couple of years to 30cm width it will be smothered with Pompoms of pink flowers in spring. The hairy rosette crowns keep the plant looking attractive through to winter. We currently have this on our rock garden which brings great colour in spring. It will be ideal for the alpine rock garden, front of border and containers in a sunny or partial sun position.
