One to 2 ft. high: st. erect, densely glandular: lvs. basal, very numerous, forming a thick rosette which is frequently 6-7 in. diam., convex, linear-lanceolate, light or gray-green edged silvery, 6 in. long, base ciliate, margin erose-crenulate: infl. a full, pyramidal panicle, branched from the base, many-fld., everywhere glandulose-pilose: fls. white, sometimes dotted purple toward the center; calyx-lobes ovate or oblong, obtuse; petals obovate, 3-nerved, the midnerve usually bifid toward the apex. June, July. Pyrenees.— This species will grow in any rock crevice and is very showy in lf. and in fl., but it has the unfortunate habit of dying when through flowering. Prop. by seed but care must be taken as it hybridizes very readily. Var. hybrida, Hort., is a form which is offered in the trade: grows 18 in. high: fls. white. Var. magnifica, Hort., is a form with large rosettes up to 12-14 in. diam. and very profusely fld. panicles which attain a length of 2 ft. and a diam. of 16 in. The fls. are white. G.C. III. 53:390 (as S. longifolia). CH
