The Armeria juniperifolia is nice also when fading. This is a white form or subspecies or cultivar – Hungarian garden shops don't have information about such trifles.
Saxifraga cochlearis minor – will flower for the first time for us. I bought it in Prague in 2008. It was just flowering at that time, but in my opinion not the flowers are its utmost beauty. There are some dull, little white flowers on a loose panicle. But the cushion is nice, that's why I like it. Yet I let it to flower. Here it is with buds:
It lives in an artificial crevice in a trough. The compost is almost pure sand, only with a little peat. Its cushion is growing rapidly but is nice, compact and tolerates very well our hot summers. I water it regularly and abundantly from early spring to autumn. In wintertime it gets no water at all.
Here is the Dryas octopetala, and in the background Androsace villosa, in a trough in the garden. In the same trough lives a Pinus mugo, but it behaves itself very well.
The first Lewisia cotyledon flower has opened. And what a beautiful color! There are countless buds on every plant, so in a few days will be a real flower feast. Especially if also Androsace sarmentosa begins to bloom...
And now a test.
In the cushion of Draba imbricata (also from Prague, 2008) are some yellowing rosettes:
With tweezers I pulled out those yellow leaf rosettes:
The cushion is tight, compact, we will see if the yellowing stops now.
