Silky rock jasmine

Androsace sarmentosa 'Chumbyi'

Androsace sarmentosa Chumbyi, silky rock jasmine, Plant Select
Charming yet tough little plant from high in the Himalayas. Furry gray-green rosettes proliferate with strawberry like red runners to form intricate, silky semi-evergreen patches. Clusters of fragrant pink flowers with yellow eyes rise on short stems in early summer, a focal point in rock gardens or permanent containers.

Tips from the pros: Avoid hot, humid situations; thrives in sun or partial shade.
