A choice woodland perennial with deeply dissected, blue-green foliage and pale pink flowers. Clumps up well when established producing very small bulbils to extend its range.

Prefers a moist but well-drained soil in partial shade.

Height: 4 - 8 inches / 10 - 20cm

Spread: 4 - 8 inches / 10 - 15cm

Lynne's notes:

This is one for the connoisseur. That said, it's easy to grow but suits alpine trough, sink or pot cultivation rather than the open border. Once established it reliably reappears each spring and unless temperatures begin to climb early in the year persists until mid summer. A real sweetie.

Delivery Options

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.
