Ajania: Ajania pacifica

This genus with 30 species belongs to the family of the Compositae and is native to the exposed, rocky regions of central and eastern Asia. Ajania pacifica is a low, well-branched herbaceous perennial with sinuate, mid-green leaves with a silvery edge, covered with woolly hairs underneath. Ajania flowers in autumn with enchanting umbels of yellow flower heads. The plants grow best in a sunny position in well-drained, fertile soil. It is an excellent plant for rock gardens and herbaceous borders. It also looks very good in containers with other autumn flowering plants such as Acorusor Carex species. However, it does need a little protection in winter in colder regions. The seeds can be sown in spring directly in pots, which should be kept frost-free. They can also be propagated from cuttings.
