Sweet-flowered Androsace (Rock Jasmine)
Androsace chamaejasme

Season: Spring
Habitat:
 Montane to Subalpine
Height:
 Up to 5 cm

Description: This tiny flower is often missed, but always a pleasant discovery. It grows from a trailing, often reddish, stem. Periodically a dense tuft of leaves will form, and an erect stem will sprout. Topping this stem is a small cluster of delicate white flowers with a yellow ring in the centre. It reminds one of a white forget-me-not, and is rarely forgotten.
