Improved from the species with its larger flowers and reblooming ability, this attractive new alpine offers a unique look for North American rock gardens and containers. Large, white, star-shaped flowers appear prolifically on long stems that make them ideal for cut flower use. Silvery green, narrow linear foliage forms a compact mound. Introduced by: Concept Plants
