Stunning yellow flowers with black Spots.
These plants are notoriously hard to propagate but once established are everlasting. Their flowers start yellow with black spots then eventually fade to white spots. These then fade to leave pastel yellow flowers. A rare delight for any keen alpine Gardener and enthusiasts alike. Ideally grow in a free draining soil on the alpine rock garden, scree bed or containers. Also great plant for alpine houses.
Due to the tricky nature of seed production and germination this is rarely available and sporadic in germination so please use in-stock notifier so you can be informed every time we have a batch.
