Alpines


Euphorbia capitulata
Euphorbia capitulata
A tiny tiny little species - much smaller than E.myrsinites, which it sort of resembles. Those flower heads are less than a cm across. Nevertheless it's completely hardy in a well-drained sunny spot and once settled is one of those species that's inclined to run underground, so not such a delicate little thing after all. Perfect with other reasonably vigorous alpines and small bulbs though.
1L pots ~ £6




Potentilla tridentata
Potentilla tridentata
A very pretty creeping species for any alpine conditions but looking especially good, I think, with heathers and other moorland plants not too dry.
1L pots ~ £6
