Androsace adenocephala

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 adenocephala has rosettes of slightly hairy leaves, bright green. The flowers can be anything from white to quite deep pink, in small clusters on short stems above the rosettes.
