Edraianthus parnassicus

Family campanulaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers violet
Size 4-6"
Light sun
Cultural notes well-drained soil
From seed germinates at room temperature
detailed seed-starting info below

Mat-forming perennial native to mountain ranges in Greece, where it occurs naturally in limestone crevices. Bears clusters of three or four violet flowers on erect stems. It may be hard to satisfy its requirements in our mostly acidic soils (and I know nothing about its cold-hardiness), but I'll do my best.

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