Soldanella villosa is the biggest and most robust of the genus, steadily spreading to give a mat. The old leaves are best cleared away early in spring, leaving the stage for the fresh new leaves, unfurling at the same time as the purple, fringed bells open.
Purple, fringed bells open over mat of round, shiny leaves.
