Found in the mountain ranges of central and southern Europe, from central Spain to Croatia, this desirable plant has beautiful, golden-eyed, pure white, silky flowers which are more upward-facing than most of the other species which generally have drooping flowers. They are produced very early, often opening whilst still under snow cover.
Sowing advice: Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
