Do-Dy

DRABA create one of the first big shows in the spring rock garden; it is always a treat to watch the bees picking out flowers emerging from the melting snow. Below you will find easy and indestructible forms for the open garden as well as fuzz balls choice enough for your best lump of tufa or trough. Try potting a few in show pans in the manner of the Europeans, even non rock gardeners will turn their heads.

Draba dedeana

Draba dedeana

I have high hopes for these, the rosettes are large and very hard looking as good as any stiff Draba I have ever grown; Mojmir collected them from rock crevices at 1500m near Cuenca Spain, where they form hard cushions of spiny rosettes 10cm across. They are not wet sensitive, indeed for such a choice Draba culture is positively easy, flowers are white and the best forms have huge broad petaled flowers, not the squinny narrow crap you get from the seed exchanges, Mojmir described these as large flowered, and I am waiting anxiously for the first flowers this winter. At its best dedeana is the finest of the white flowered Drabas.____ZONE 4

Draba hispanica

Draba hispanica

Collected by Holubec, who based on his bryoides collections has exquisite taste in Drabas; he collected these from limestone crevices in the Sierra Nevada at 1900m. A long time favorite of mine, the rosettes of long leaves are quite distinct although in this form they are broader than most forms I have grown in the past, flowers are bright yellow on 3-5cm stems, this is one of most elegant of the non fuzz ball Drabas.____ZONE 4
