Androsace carnea subsp. brigantiaca

The name Androsace brings to mind pictures of high alpine cushions, clinging to the most inaccessible rock crevices, or perhaps grown to perfection as show plants. In fact the genus also includes some that make spreading mats and are easily grown outside without protection, some meadow herbs, and some annual weeds. You won't find the last group here. The majority are high alpines, making cushions or mats of tight rosettes, with short-stems flowers, singly or in small clusters.

Androsace carnea subsp. brigantiaca has small rosettes of quite dark green leaves, with short stems bearing clusters of white flowers. It is excellent for a trough or raised bed and doesn’t need winter protection.
