I've grown C. acaulis off and on through the years. Time for a different species! This one, from southern Europe and western Asia, should be larger, and still prickly. What am I getting myself into?
Several of last year's seedlings survived a full season, and have taken up residence in our rock garden annex. Hopefully flowers soon...

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
