Ian has some interesting and unusual plants. Why don't you ask him for info: his email address is on his web page:

I might well ask him Ralph, yes. He does indeed. The only source of a good range of Tephros etc as far as I know.

I have been trying to spread O arenaria (as I still think of it) around as I think it’s a cracking plant, modest in size, easy to flower, easy to propagate.

How hardy is it Mike? Do you think it would survive outside alongside O.fragilis types and hybrids?

It lives very happily in an unheated greenhouse but I’m not convinced it would like winter wet.
