A perennial that is 2\" tall with purple flowers in clusters covering the plant bring the total height of the plant to 6\" with a width of 1\'. Native to the Sierras 8000-12000\' and White Mountains. In its harsh sub-alpine environment its green foliage stands out. This one seems to be easily grown at lower elevations. This plant would prefer to be in a regular perennial garden or in the proximity of a lawn as long as it has excellent drainage. In the colder ranges of Evergreen Candytuft this would be excellent interplanted. It should be excellent in the East and Europe. It needs summer water similar to a lawn in areas of heat with a little afternoon shade or high filtered shade if possible. It will not flower well in full shade.
