Wulfenia carinthiaca-Cow’s FootstepWulfenia

Propagating Wulfenia should be done in early summer, after blooming, or preferably early fall by dividing the crown. This is an alpine plant found in the meadows of Austria and Albania so it dies not like heat nor humidity although it is hardy from Zones 5-8. It prefers a northern exposure in a light rich sandy/gritty soil with even moisture in either full sun or partial shade. It is evergreen and the plant reaches a height of 6-8" however its flower spikes can reach 24." It will bloom from May-July and the color is a rich deep blue. For experienced gardeners mainly.
