Notes:
These alpine perennials have woolly white leaves and white spring flowers with felted bracts. Low growing and small, they do best in rockeries and raised beds. Edelweiss is a classic plant native to the European Alps. Though it's a bit old-fashioned we think it's fun so we still carry it which warms the hearts of our Swiss customers. Trivia Question: What plant family is Edelweiss part of? Answer: The aster family. I didn't know! How fun is that?
