Erinus alpinus
“Fairy Foxglove” “Alpine Balsam”

Although one of its common names is “Fairy Foxglove,” this enchanting little perennial looks nothing like a Foxglove, though it is in the same family. Growing only 2” to 4” tall, it’s lovely growing in rock crevices & stone walls & is quite at home in the rock garden or trough. The very pretty, pinky-violet flowers are held on wiry stems above spoon-shaped leaves grouped in dwarf tufts. Blooms Spring to early Summer. Good drainage is essential. Self sows when happy.
