The Scottish Rock Garden Club....... For People Who Love Plants
Here are photographs of the second quality from Turkisch source, but they show well the habitus of new plants for our Bulgarian friend. ZZ Linum boissieri Silene bolanthoides
Plant selection from big mountain Sierra Nevada is the last dance in the fresh Spanish rhythm. The highest ridges are formed from something looking like crystalline schist and there you can see the real miniature alpine (suitable for tufa cultivation) called Ptilotrichum purpureum. I grow myself in my limy soil the hedgehogs of Erinacea anthyllis. A real miracle is the shocking red Anthyllis vulneraria ssp. atlantis and the local spring Gentiana is distinct from G. verna.Ptilotrichum purpureum
To me seems the Ptilotrichum purpureum a totally different plant from what I know in culture??Looks more a bit succulent.
QuoteTo me seems the Ptilotrichum purpureum a totally different plant from what I know in culture??Looks more a bit succulent.Are you thinking of Ptilotrichum spinosum 'Purpureum', Luit? I remember this one making a bushier plant with smaller flowers.
