We used to grow the leaves of several Soldanellas. They never flowered.

Maggi, many thanks for your quick reply.
Shelagh, I tried to cultivate several Soldanella species in my garden, but was not very successful
Maybe it was simply too hot and too dry for them. But some years ago I filled a bigger pan with peat
blocks and placed it in a light shaded place and think, that Soldanellas like it. They flower and self
sown seedlings appear.
