These velvety greenish-white flowers are unusual and quite pretty. The flowers continue to split into smaller flowers. They are supposed to confr luck to soldiers who find them in the mountains. As an alpine they need light unlike here where they are crowded. They also do not like to be too wet in the winter. I find them tempermental as I cannot give them the conditions they require all year round.
