Anyone grown this alpine?
Raffenaldia primuloides aka Cossonia africanus.
It come from North Africa is all I know at present.

On plant Raffenaldia primuloides (syn Cossonia africanus)



Yes, Owdboggy, we have this. It is a crucifer (now Brassicacea) and my seed originally came from Morroco. Last year it was flowering now (one of ours even took a first at Perth Show) but currently it is in tight bud. We have it in a pot and also in the garden where it actually seems to be growing much better. Maybe it is not so happy with its roots being confined in the pot?
If you have any specific queries please feel free to ask us.
btw, I have never heard the second name before.

THanks. Have put it in a pot for now, until I redo one of the big troughs into a crevice style garden when it can go in there.
Good show? The Solihull one was one of the best we have been to for a couple of years, many plants and many people. Photos to follow when I have processed them.

This year Perth was excellent. Lots and lots of plants and some really good quality, one of the best we have been to in a while, also.
