Plant Details

A rarely offered, superb rugged alpine which will perform well either on a rock garden or in the border. Native to the Alps and also the Balkan peninsula, 

Orange-yellow flowers, usually red in bud, open in spring over tidy tussocks of silvery-green hairy leaves. Often repeat flowers later in the summer too.

Drought resistant when established.

Height: 25cm

Common name(s): Golden hawk's beard; Golden hawksbeard


All our plants are supplied in at least 9x10cm pots. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants planted in bigger pots at the same time. We do not sell 'plug plants' because those need to be grown on before planting. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant. We grow everything we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside.
