Alpine Auriculas.

TERESE Gold centred

Alpine auriculas are well suited to the Swedish climate. They come in a large range of colours and are suitable for growing in pots, in an outside border or rock garden.
GÖRAN Light centred
The class type which we call Alpines can be defined as follows:-

  • They can have a Gold centre (yellow centred) or a Light centre (white or cream centred).
  • The petals are evenly shaded; being dark at the centre and becoming lighter to the outside edge.
  • There is no ring of paste on the flowers.
  • There is no farina (meal) on the flowers or on the leaves.
MONA Gold centred
