Cultivation

Requires a position in full sun in any gritty perfectly drained not too fertile circumneutral or slightly alkaline soil[2]. Given a well-drained soil and protection from winter wet, this is one of the easier alpine plants to grow[2]. The plant has been avidly collected from the wild in the past for its ornamental use as a dried flower - this has caused it to become rare in the wild and it is now a protected species[1].
