Common name: Woolly Rock Jasmine
Botanical name: Androsace lanuginosa Family: Primulaceae (Primrose family)
Named for its woolly silver-green leaves, this mounding Himalayan native
produces clusters of delicate pink and white florets, with eyes sometimes
crimson, sometimes green. The flowers beautifully change color between pink,
white and red, as they age. The flowers are also lightly scented. The loose mats or cushions of interlacing,
trailing stems are tinged red in youth and branch freely from the leaf axils.
