A dainty beauty, whose long-lasting, white, April-June blooms symbolize the hopefulness of spring after the long winter months. A unique species that is an uncommon plant in the wild, as it grows in quite a specific habitat. It is often found in harsh dry sites, where it is difficult for other plants to grow, and as a result it is quite drought tolerant. It can provide a succulent rosette look to your garden and will do well even when placed in between rocks or along path edges.
