Scientific name is: Aethionema schistosum
If you have, do you have any tips on starting this from seed? And growing it in your garden??
I think it's a cute plant!

I have seeds for this on moist paper towels.
They have just sprouted this week.
I had them in the frig on moist paper towel for a month Dec 19 to January 13, and took them out of frig mid January.
They sprouted now about 2 weeks later.
This is first time I have grown them.

Will do! I shall transplant them to pots, and keep until June for placing outside.
Officially we are zone 3 and they are rated as zone 4.
I'll try one or two in several micro climates in my yard,--
to see where they will survive next winter.
