S. dolomiticum - in general

Post by I'm the 1 on Mon Oct 27, 2008 9:50 am

S. dolomiticum was first described by Facchini in 1855.

This is a species that is rare in cultivation although described so long ago.

Habitat: In the wild it is to be found only very localy in the eastern Alps growing on rocks rich in lime.

Description: Rosettes are semi-open, subglobular, 2 to 4 cm in diameter; somewhat similar to some small forms of S. montanum but differing by the denser and more pointed, upright leaves. The rosette leaves are strongly ciliate, bright green with the outside of the older leaves suffused scarlet. Offsets are numerous on slender stolons. Flowers are a deep reddish-pink and borne on thin stems bearing a few leaves.

This is not a very easy species to grow because it resents winter damp.
