Description

Xanthisma coloradoense (syn. Aster coloradoensis, Machaeranthera coloradoensis) is a species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae known by the common name Colorado tansyaster. It is native to Colorado and Wyoming in the United States.

This cushion plant is a perennial grows up to 14 centimeters tall, with several to many thick, hairy stems. The flowers are pink or purple.

This plant grows in mountains, often in an alpine climate. It grows in open areas, where there is often little vegetative cover and the terrain is rocky.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 4-9

Height: 15cm, 6"

Location: Sun

Seeds per pack: 5

Note: Ornamental use only. May be poisonous.

Germination: As with many perennials, these seeds require a period of moist cold to help them grow. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:

Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Place the seeds just under the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container in a cold area (but not freezing, perhaps a refrigerator) for 5-6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks, or occasionally several months, after the warming period.
