Hairy Rock Jasmine is a very variable plant. Typically it is a small clustered or mat-forming perennial, with rosettes of linear to elliptical leaves, up to 1.5 cm across. The leaves have fine hairs underneath, particularly towards the tips. The flowers, which are 6-10 mm in diameter, are in umbels on flowering-stems up to 3 cm tall. They vary in color from white to red-purple, with a pink or yellow eye. The white forms may age to pink. Hairy Rock Jasmine is native to Europe to Mongolia and NW Himalaya, Morocco.
