One of the finest of all rock garden plants, Ramonda myconi (Pyrenean Violet) is a low-growing, is an evergreen perennial forming a rosette of broadly ovate, hairy, dark green leaves. In mid to late spring, small clusters of charming, outward-facing, violet-blue flowers, 1 in. across (2.5 cm), are borne on leafless stems above the foliage. A diminutive, enchanting plant that is ideal for rock gardens or containers.

  • Recipient of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society.
  • Grows up to 3-4 in. tall and wide (7-10 cm).
  • Best grown in partial shade, in moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist, well-drained soils. Plants grow best if grown vertically since they dislike winter wet on the crown.
  • Perfect for rock gardens or containers.
  • Virtually disease free. Keep an eye out for slugs and snails.
  • Propagate by seed or root leaf cuttings in early autumn.
  • Native to the Spanish Pyrenees.
