Grew this from seed acquired through the NARGS Seed Exchange. It has survived more than five Alaskan winters, including one several years ago where it went to -20 with no snow cover, and this winter with record snow. Very compact plant with hard, silvery gray leaves. Self sows in a friendly way for me. Very cheerful in early spring, one of the first plants to bloom for us. Benefits from a deadheading of the first bloom, will often re-bloom two or three times in a season.
