Can anyone ID this pretty little plant? They say it can be used in a container "rock garden"....

Thanks :)

I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they die....it's like losing a friend..... Crying

Physoplexis comosa:



I knew that as Phyteuma comosum but we don't have that in the database so I checked the Catalogue of Life for the current name. Perhaps we should add Phyteuma comosum as the synonym:

Kim, hope you don't mind me taking this off topic to ask about your avatar pic. Has it aged significantly since that pic? That's a killer idea!
