Heads of large yellow flowers with nice veins carried on low mounds of bluish, grey-green, almost fleshy leaves in late spring/early summer. Well grown, it makes a tremendous display. About 10cm (4") high.
A special plant that deserves a special place with good soil. Does well in a stone trough and makes a good specimen in the alpine house or frame. Enjoys full sunshine, well-drained soil or compost and will benefit from a little feeding.
I am very pleased to offer this plant. I have tried a couple of times overs the years to grow and propagate it but with limited success. And it's not always easy to find. I now have a healthy stock and it does very well with us - so well that we have good numbers for 2016 and have reduced the price. Another of those special plants that fails to produce good seeds so we must propagate this from (scarce) cuttings.
Raised by Gemmell's Nurseries in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire in the 1940s.
