‘Edelweiss' is a unique hardy perennial. Easy to grow, they are sure to make an impact in the summer garden producing stunning white petals atop fuzzy grey-green foliage that prevent moisture loss. A member of the Daisy family, these alpine flowers originate from Asia and are often found in challenging environments making it the perfect plant for ever-changing British weather. Preferring full sun, these dramatic flowers are ideal for planting in rockeries, or in groups at the front of the garden border as they reach a height of 20cm. Flower from May to June. Top-quality 5cm UK-grown module plants supplied.
