Neat little green domes with short stems carry these brilliant big flowers of such a bright colour and with contrasting dark eyes. The backs of the petals are a nice buff colour, inherited from one of its parents. Early summer flowering.
Deserves a special place in every alpine garden and is easy to grow. Well suited to troughs etc. About 10cm (4") high.
This plant was raised by Jack Drake who introduced many fine alpine plants from his famous Inshriach nursery near Aviemore. His business partner, John Lawson, considered Inshriach Dazzler, "One of the finest plants to be raised in this nursery".
