I have been waiting for this for many years ... since this spring, Arctous alpina from the Dolomites has been flourishing for me for the first time. :)

I did not get the supplier from whom I got it. But I'll try to make cuttings. :)

I can look for seeds (in the fall) or send you cuttings if you are interested.

Thank you Troy and Leucogenes that would be appreciated. It is a pity that native (UK) upland plants are not grown more widely.
