Known as rock jasmines or fairy candelabras, Androsace widely cultivated for their dense cushions covered in white flowers.

These unique fragrant flowers, borne in early summer, are white with a bright yellow eye when they first open but then gradually turn pink, and can quite cover the entire face of the cushion when in full bloom. The plant forms small tufts of rosettes covered in long, silvery, silky hairs forming a solid cushion. 

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 3-5cm, 1.5-2"

Location: Sun or part shade

Hardiness zones: 3-7

Seeds per pack: 5

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.
