Soldanella minima v alba

Soldanella-alba

Soldanella minima v alba is a tiny alpine plant with dark green, kidney-shaped, evergreen foliage and pure white flowers in late winter to early spring.  A choice plant for the trough, tufa or alpine garden.  Grow in very gritty soil in part sun with moderate water.  Dolomites.  Hard to -20 degrees F.  Primulaceae

Soldanella minima is described as having a solitary flower while this plant has branched stems and multiple flowers.  This leads us to believe that it is incorrectly labeled and may be Soldanella carpatica var alba instead.
