Indigenous to the high meadows and lime-
enriched rocky slopes of the Pyrenees and European Alps, this neat, small-sized perennial sends forth numerous upright spires studded with endearing whorled creamy-white flowers donning violet lips and throats. The long-lasting tubular blooms, thought to resemble a dragon’s mouth, brighten the deep green evergreen rosette, which develops scalloped margins plus a textural, quilted evergreen aspect. Appreciative of superb drainage as well as protection from hot afternoon sun, hearty Dragon’s Mouth can be nudged into rockeries, troughs, alpine gardens or pathway edges, where it lures plant lovers and small nectar-sipping birds plus other pollinators.
Size: 8" – 10" high x 8" wide.
