Densely cespitose, 1-2 in. high, with short caudicles: sts. columnar, densely imbricate-foliose, ashy pilose: lvs. linear, rounded-obtuse, base attenuate, when dried 3-nerved, apex cinerous: infl. numerous, terminal, few-fld. racemes or more seldom several-fld. panicles with very short pedicels: fls. white or yellowish white (rarely citron-yellow or purple); calyx-lobes ovate, obtuse; petals round-obovate, very obtuse, smoothly emarginate, 3-nerved, twice as long as the calyx-lobes. July, Aug. High mountains from the Pyrenees to Austria. Gn. 76, p. 615.—Frequently confused with S. moschata and S. cespitosa. A strictly Alpine species forming a dense moss-like cushion, the uppermost lvs. of which are reddish toward the base and fresh green toward the apex and are rather fleshy. Suitable only for alpine-gardening. Var. foliis-variegatis. Hort., is a form with yellow-and-white variegated lvs. Very likely this really is a variety of S. moschata. CH
