Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral coriaceous On Oct 21, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

The flowers of 'Lawrence Flatman' are more deeply colored than those of 'Ballerina', from which it's descended.

This compact alpine species is native to grassy and rocky areas of the western and central Pyranees. It needs a dry spot or very well-drained soil and does best in the rock garden. It dislikes clay.

Z5 is about its hardiness limit, and in eastern North America the summers are too hot for it to prosper much south of Z6.
