|Growing up through rupturewort |
Rock garden plant featuring creamy white flowers with yellow stamens, and deeply divided light green leaves. The photo at right shows the funny bald heads after flowering, which will develop into fluffy seed clusters in another few weeks.
||Mt. Baldo windrose
||full sun-part shade
||ordinary garden soil (not too dry)
||germinates at room temperature
detailed seed-starting info below
|Seed ripens||late June|
In recent years, I've grown it in an area colonized by green carpet rupturewort, which makes a nice background for the white flowers.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
Seed for this plant is included on my seed trade list
One or more images of this plant are included in my stock photo catalog

|Kathy De.||Jan 17, 2010||will this plant (Mt. Baldo, windrose) come up every where like some geraniums do. To much work to keep in control....any suggestions? Thanks|
The extent to which a plant spreads around of course depends on growing conditions - I can only comment on my own, where I have never seen a volunteer seedling, even though they are easy to germinate in controlled conditions.
- Seed from '03 trade. Baggy 65F (100%G, 14-17d).
Same seed. Pot 65F (most G, 24-30d). Germination started after disturbing soil.

Seedlings sometimes suffer from inability to shed their fluffy seedcoats in indoor conditions. I find that leaving sprouted seeds in their baggy for a few days helps the seed leaves escape, making the seedlings more likely to survive.
