Globularia meridionalis (Podp.) O.Schwarz

Small evergreen, spreading, domed subshrub to about 10 cm tall, with branches that root at the nodes. Leaves in a basal rosette. Flowers in fluffy heads on short stalks, lavender-white; summer. [G. cordifolia subsp. bellidifolia (Ten.) Hayek]

European Alps


Less frequently grown plants from the European Alps are G. cordifolia L., which is very similar but a smaller plant with smaller leaves; and G. nudicaulis L., which is a tufted plant that does not root at the nodes. G. bellidifolia is an illegitimate name used in the trade, the plants probably belonging to G. nudicaulis.
