Superbly vigorous 2nd generation hybrid of S. carpatica x S. pusilla from the vaunted Edrom Nursery in Scotland and we may be the first to introduce this to North America. If you are into small ornament of ingenious construction, the maximization of minimalism, a totally improbable flower to foliage ratio - we have you so covered!
Tiny-leafed hybrid of Soldanella carpatica and S. pusilla . This very small scale little creeper with tiny evergreen leaves surprises in spring with over-achieving light lavender fringed bells. Similar to 'Spring Symphony' but flowering a bit earlier. One of the easiest Soldanella to grow. This is one we picked up in the UK a few years back.
Soldanellas completely bewitch us wih their dual charms of excellent evergreen foliage and incredibly cute flowers. When these little guys flower, we just smile because this is such a little overachiever with its lavender fringed flowers in April. Reddish leaf petioles and leaf undersides are subtle allure.
Carpathian Snowbell. One of the daintiest of the Soldanella species, this is native to the Carpathian Mts in Central and Eastern Europe where it grows in low turf, rock outcrops and crevices. This is the less common white form which we simply adore. Hardy to zone 5 and perfectly suited to moist peaty-gritty trough.
A less commonly encountered species which calls the Rhodopi and Pirin Mts of Bulgaria home. This lavender-blue flowers finely fringed in very narrow petals on a flower that is more widely open than related species. Small rounded evergreen leaves are a pleasure all year but it’s the flowers that makes your toes tingle in spring.
We received this from Bovees Nursery as the clone 'Major' but that is no longer recognized. Soldanellas are notoriously hard to identify as they are a promiscuous lot and to be sure, you need plants of known wild origin. Whatever the correct name, this is a proven plant for shade with charming purple fringed flowers.
Beautiful Primrose family member with evergreen rounded leaves and numerous upright stems from which hang fringed lavender bells in spring. Truly a plant of elfin charm. This is very good garden plant and easy to please. Native to European high meadows. Showy beyond its size.
Soldanella is a Primrose relative native to the high meadows in the mountains of Europe. This is one we received from Collector's Nursery with dark violet flowers - very choice! It looks to be a match to the Bulgarian Soldanella rhodopaea. Evergreen and clumping, this takes the same conditions as Primroses.
