detailed seed-starting info below

Alpine plant, native to Europe. From compact grassy tufts rise thin stems with little pure white flowers - so bright in fact that I've yet to take a photo where the flowers aren't overexposed (or the rest of the photo isn't nearly black). But you get the picture from the one displayed here.

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