Wulfenia amherstiana
Product Details
A super alpine plant from Afghanistan and the Himalayas forming small lush green rosettes of leathery leaves. The margins of these leaves are strongly scalloped and veins are feintly present on the upper surface. The flowers are borne on rigid stems from the centre of the rosette and reach up to 15 cms high. Each flower is borne up the stem and curiously - all on the same side! This tends to make the flower lean towards that same side giving an unusual appearance. Colour of the flower is strong Blue-violet. Similar to W. carinthiaca but much smaller.
