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: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Start indoors. Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. These seeds require light to germinate. Sow the seeds on surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Do not bury the seeds. Leave them at room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for 4 weeks. If they have not germinated after 4 weeks then a cooling period is required. Cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 4 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to a cool room (15C, 59F) for them to germinate. Germination can be 30-60 days after the warming period, though some will take longer.
