Hi All,I started this from seed last year. They came from the NARGS exchange but just labeled as Androsace. They have been blooming for a little while. Am I correct in my ID? Click on the pics to enlarge.
It certainly looks like it! I've also had it from NARGS seed, and seen it in the wild, and it also shows up occasionally in the garden.Here's a description from Moss & Packer (Flora of Alberta, 2nd Ed.), if you'd like to compare in more detail:"Small scapose annual (usually winter annual) or possibly short-lived perennial; leaves linear-oblanceolate, 5-25 mm long, entire or toothed, glabrous or puberulent; scapes 1-numerous, 2-25 cm tall, glabrous to puberulent; involucral bracts lanceolate to subulate, 1-3 mm long; pedicels 3-20, ascending or spreading; calyx-tube cup-shaped, 5-ridged, pale, longer than the sharply triangular or subulate lobes; corolla white or pinkish, about as long as the calyx; capsule many-seeded" (pg. 450).

Thank you! :)
