Hesperochiron californicus

Hesperochiron californicus
A little-known but charming miniature perennial related to Phacelia and Nemophila, making pale rosy almost stemless funnel-shaped flowers over a neat rosette of leaves in spring. It emerges in late winter and disappears again in early summer.

I’ve not had enough to experiment with until now, so been keeping it in the tunnel, but it might well be happy in a well-drained sunny spot outside, among small bulbs for example, with plenty of water in spring. Very pretty.
