Just take care Thomas  ;) ;D
Recently I found Acaena ovalifolia rapidly spreading along forestry roads as an invasive species :'(

Hi Ashley

You're absolutely right...many acaenas can be very troublesome and invasive. Acaena ovalifolia is definitely one of them. Acaena alpina seems to be more reserved...at least that's what the pictures on the internet show. I will observe it...thanks.  ;)

I just got the right name for this plant from other German plant friends. It is Talinum calycinum... I apologize for this mistake. I had no time yet for a detailed research...and trusted the label. ...it was a Gift.

Thomas I was wondering if you have a picture of the whole plant. It reminds me a lot  of the wilder Lewisias. Some botanists have it under Calandrinia u. That genus is also full of gems to be tried out  in the Alpine garden.

Hello Arturo...

I am very happy to hear from you again...
I just got the right name for this plant from other German plant friends. It is Talinum calycinum... I apologize for this mistake. I had no time yet for a detailed research...and trusted the label. ...ist was a Gift.

So sorry again for the wrong name....

So the article can be deleted... I wouldn't mind...😉

Thomas, now that I saw the full plant in a picture
see:
http://www.robsplants.com/plants/TalinCalyc, my intuition proved correct. Talinum=Phemeranthus belongs to the Portulacaceae, of which recently the Montiaceae have been split away. The only thing wrong is that it belongs to the US prairies instead of Patagonia. Other than  that, it a very worthwhile plant for a rock garden! If it ever reaches my garden then it will be for sure part of the plant world of Patagonia.... ;D

Just now I was on a small plant exchange in the botanical garden in Adorf. While walking through the Alpinum I found Senecio triodon...

Maggi... thank you for showing me this great photo of Vojtech... it encourages me.

There are two more plants from this "area of life"... here again I could use "spiritual support"... because the cultivation of South American alpine plants is a real challenge here... but I am persistent...😏

Trichocline reptans
Andryala agardhii

Greetings

So that this topic does not come to a complete standstill, once again a modest contribution from me...

Today... five years after sowing, I discovered for the first time a beginning of a flower on Acaena alpina. The seed originally came from the Reserva nacional altos de lircay. I am very curious about the final result.🤞

And two more representatives of the breathtaking flora of Patagonia united in one picture... the two , "sisters" Calceolaria fothergillii and Calceolaria darwinii.

Thomas! aren't they just so lovely....I doubt that in nature their background would  be tuffa stones. Here most possibly very well weathered glacial granite boulders. The brown/sienna colours actually accent their colours reddish/burnt orange. Truly gems. Thanks for posting these photos!

Hello Arturo

I am particularly pleased that you, of all people, have responded to my pictures today.

The stones in the background only serve as a pleasant frame for photographing the plants that are in pots. The two Calceolaria are not in calcareous substrate... but in very permeable mineral soil with maximum drainage and a rather neutral level. If the tuff stones in the background have caused confusion, I apologise.

On this occasion I have another unanswered question.... a few years ago I got a small plant that I thought had been lost in 2019. The name was Draba antarctica....
Now, after three years, a spontaneous seedling has appeared and even flowered. However, renewed searches on the internet did not produce any hits with this name. Maybe you (or another specialist) can give an ID for this small plant.

Thomas afterr searching a bit your plant looks close to the following:
https://sib.gob.ar/especies/draba-magellanica?

Draba magellanica.

Draba antarctica is a misnomer. The botanical literature does not have any references to that name. Both Kew or the Darwinion do not have that name even in the synonyms.

Your photo clearly shows a brassicaceae and a highly probable Draba.

I hope it helps you out!

No need for apologies for photo of the Calceolarias. They are just beautiful, the backdrop just adds to the charm.
