Special Value

This is a unique collection in the Netherlands, where many of the especially cushion forming species are brought together in the Rock Garden. The collection has a high degree of wild collected specimen, mostly grown from seed.

Description

Within the Rock Garden (Alpine) collection, we do have some special genera that has our focus, like Eriogonum (Wild Buckwheat - Polygonaceae). Many Eriogonum species are very nice cushion forming plants that are suitable for the Rock Garden. The genus is restricted to Northern America (USA) and mainly a Rocky Mountain element. Many species are growing in California. Some species are highly variable and it is interesting to see that variation within the collection.
