Grassy-leaved tufted rock garden perennial. Out of my attempts to start two different species of Acantholimon this year, I got exactly one seedling: the one pictured here. Looks nice even at this stage, so I hope it survives out in the open garden. It will go into the rock garden when it reaches a viable size.
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
