ROCK JASMINE Androsace mathildae
Known as rock jasmines or fairy candelabras, Androsace widely cultivated for their dense cushions covered in white flowers.
This is one of the very choicest alpines and a frequent show-winner. It is a very rare plant in nature, being found only on a few of the highest peaks of the central Apennines.
Type: Hardy perennial
Location: Sun or part shade
Hardiness zones: 5-8
Seeds per pack: 3
Germination: Your planting container should have holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Flatten the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water. Place the tiny seeds on the surface, and cover them with a very thin layer of sand. Keep moist. If seedlings do not appear within 2 months, place the pot in a fridge or cold location for 6 weeks, and then bring them back to warmth. Once seedlings emerge, place the pot in a sunny place, or under bright grow lights.
