Charming little alpine. I can grow it... it must be easy.

This plant can be found growing out of chinks in stone walls around here and will seed itself. The flowers look very attractive. To collect seed, take the mature flowering stems, hang upside down over a sheet of white paper and the tiny seeds will fall out onto the paper. Fresh seed germinates easily.
