Wulfenia carinthiaca


Cow’s Footstep Wulfenia

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.558.100


A seldom-seen rock garden plant, native to the Albanian Alps. This forms a stunning low evergreen rosette of long, shiny leaves with crinkled or scalloped edges. Taller stems rise above, bearing spikes of deep-blue tubular flowers during the summer. Must have a rich and gritty soil that stays evenly moist. Best suited to alpine troughs and scree gardens. A nice challenge for the experienced gardener. Will absolutely perish if grown under regular perennial border conditions. Not a good choice for regions with hot, humid summers.
