A beautiful and choice alpine with stems of reddish-pink flower spikes in spring over clumps of silvery rosettes. The attractive pink bits are bracts surrounding the insignificant flowers but are as bonny as any flower.
Slow growing and always remains tight and compact so perfect in a stone trough or a crevice in the rock garden. Stems about 12cm (5") high.
Often listed as Sax. grisebachii or Sax grisebachii 'Wisley'
