Arenaria sp. ex. Wallowa Mts Arenaria sp. ex. Wallowa Mts

A fine little tight mat-forming alpine from the Wallowas in Oregon that appeals only to the most nerdacious of plant nerds in the elevated stratosphere of alpine plant and rock garden geekdom because this is essentially a small swatch of closely clipped putting green astroturf.  It flowers but you will likely miss it.
