This bizarre plant looks soft and feathery in appearance but actually has a hard, brittle texture. It slowly creeps to form a bun or cushion, and is at home in the rock garden, alpine trough or in paving cracks. Tiny yellow flowers appear in summer. Requires excellent drainage. Consider growing with a mulch of gravel. Performs especially well in an alpine garden. Though native to the Falkland Islands. It is also known as Bolax glebaria. Flowers are individually insignificant but when each flower is held in a cluster and each plant is producing numerous clusters, the whole plant is covered in yellow flowers in summer. Impressive when allowed to grow over rocks or down walls.
