Pot Size: 9cm
Description: A delightful small to prostrate creeping species we collected from the slopes of Volcan del Ruiz in the Central Mountain Range of Colombia early in 2016. Where this species was growing mixed with short grasses and alpine-like plants. Forming small patches of overlapping narrowly ovate fresh green crenate leaves to about 7 cm long. With white spiky flowers backed by a silvery-white ruff of stiff calyces to about 2 cm across, just poking through dense foliage. Easily grown in a sunny to partly shaded spot in drained soil that does not dry out or get excessively hot. As this is a Paramo plant that will not tolerate high temperatures.
