Masses of bright pink flowers cover low mats in early spring.
Often said to be one of the best garden varieties of this popular early season plant. It certainly flowers very freely and is a good shade of dark, rosy pink. It is the first of our varieties to flower, about a week before 'Ruth Draper' and noticeably earlier than 'Wetterhorn' or 'Saint Kilda'.
Ideal planted in a stone trough or in a crevice on the rock garden. Like all its type, it dislikes hot, dry conditions. Only and inch or two high (3 - 5 cm)
A very old variety and an Award of Garden Merit holder.
