A real treasure of a plant but most seed from exchanges is of D. deltoides to which it is distantly related.

The var caespitosa is smaller and a real challenge to grow, not unlike an Himalayan Androsace. The rewards are great. Try planting seedlings beside tufa. Needs moisture and good drainage. Tim West grew, many years ago a plant of this and for a while I grew cuttings of this. More recently Eric Jarett gave me a seedling (not of the variety) so keep a watch out for a plant on the Summer Show bench.

This plant was growing in Zdenek Rehacek's garden in the Czech Republic.
