Wonderful tiny rock garden plant. Succulent evergreen tufts are charming all year. The yellow flowers start right around the same time as the crocuses in my garden (sometimes earlier), good for early-season cheer!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
