karataviense - emerging foliage
karataviense, in all it's forms, has fantastic foliage. The old,
familiar form of
karataviense, with vase-shaped, deeply pleated foliage is a spectacle for
the rock garden.
In the photo above, we see the typical form (the one with pinkish
off-white flowers) which
has wonderful deep bluish-silver foliage, backed and rimmed with ruddy
In the view below, taken mid May 2002, we see 3 forms of A. karataviense
together. 'Red Globe' is on the left, then 2 plants of regular A.
karataviense with purplish-
tinged foliage in the center, followed by 6 plants on the right of the
cultivar 'Ivory Queen'.
