Description

Height x Spread: 10cm x 30cm

Commonly known as the 'heart-leaved globe daisy', it produces dainty, pale lavender-blue spherical flowerheads of feathery petals, over a carpet of glossy, evergreen leaves.

Plant this ankle-high alpine where it can be best appreciated, such as in a rock or gravel garden, or combined with other alpines in a trough above ground level. Apart from avoiding planting it in acidic soil and excessive dampness in the winter, it is tough and easy to grow.  A little beauty. It will thrive in full sun in a neutral to alkaline, very free draining soil.
