Leucogenes grandiceps
The so-called South Island 'edelweiss' of New Zealand has flowers that are uncannily like those of its namesake from the European Alps. It grows on exposed cliffs and crags from 800 - 2000 m. It is easy in cultivation when grown in a soil and situation which protects it from desiccation, but it rarely flowers as freely as this.
