A new one from Beaver Creek this spring, Dracocephalum aucheri - the stem at the back is getting very furry- EDIT:  Oops, this has turned into another Lagopsis marrubiastrum, undeniably better grown than the ones I already have! :

Saxifraga 'Sieberi' bought from Wrightman's this spring:

Intricate meshwork of hairs on Centaurea paralica, bought from Beaver Creek this spring:

Lagopsis marrubiastrum, now in bloom... yep, those little yellow things peeping out of the fur are the flowers.  The whole thing is about 3 inches tall.  A puzzling plant.  ;-)
