Hutchinsia alpina


Hutchinsia

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.279.600


(=Pritzelago alpina) Also called Chamois Cress. Hutchinsia is not so common in gardens, but is a reliable spring-blooming species best suited to the rock garden or for edging a well-drained border. It forms a low carpet or creeping mat of ferny evergreen leaves, smothered for many weeks by short sprays of tiny white flowers. Great in walls and trough gardens. Prefers part shade in hotter regions. Clumps may be easily divided in late summer.
