Notes About :Leontopodium

All Edelweiss types are outdoor plants (they don't last indoors), winter dormant (no top growth in winter) and hardy to at least -20 degrees Fahrenheit. They are fairly easy to grow in most well drained soils and like most plants, they don’t like wet. They'll perform best planted in the garden or in larger planters. The soil should be neutral to alkaline, fertilizing should be very little and grow them in full sun, light shade in hotter climates. Leontopodium alpinum, the Edelweiss of the Alps is generally short lived; 2-7 years. We highly recommend growing the variety 'Matterhorn' and/or Asian edelweiss. They are long lived and better adapting to different climates. Read more about Edelweiss by clicking on info link next to the Leontopodium link on the left of the webpage. Also, make sure to check out the Trumpet Gentians to go along with your Edelweiss. (Click on the "Gentiana" link to the left)

The real thing, of the Swiss Alps. Bloom consists of yellowish-white flowers surrounded by stars of flannel-textured, gray-white bracts. Needs well drained, rather lean soil. It's generally shorter-lived (2-7 years) than all others. Please see 'Matterhorn' or any other Leontopodium for longer-lived versions of the Edelweiss.

An amazing new selection of the European Edelweiss, with an extended longevity and bloom time. The first plant we planted 2008 is still going strong. They survived the hot summer of 2009 with temps between 98F and 104F for a week unscathed, blooms and all. The same flowers were still there mid November!

Maybe not the "real thing" from the Alps, but nevertheless prettiest. Covered with small, pointy flowers on short stems all summer, appearing as though grown in high altitudes. Forms small mats and is longer-lived than L. alpinum. They'll tolerate dryer spells once established, which takes several months. Until then, they need to be kept moist until established. We had the best success by planting them in fall.

Amazingly tough! You'd think growing at an altitude of 14,000 feet they wouldn't take temps in the 100s, but they did just fine. Bears typical Edelweiss flowers, although not very numerous, grow this one for the unusual silvery-fuzzy foliage and toughness.
