Edrianthus pumilio


Farrer considered it a Wahlenbergia. "The jewel of the family, imagine tuffets of pure silver 8 across, built of spiny, glistening, pointed little leaves, with their upper surface covered in silvery close-piled silk, and their mass in early summer hidden from view beneath a dense settlement of great lilac lavender cups, sitting close over the cushion and gazing sturdily up to the day. In the moraine its silvered cushions wax round and fat and full immediately, until summer makes them hide themselves in a veil of purple bells, as it were a silver table set with myrrhine goblets for a party of deplorable bibulous fairies" Farrer of course!
