can any members help by suggesting good alpines for seep zones? i was told that campanula excisa is a good one to consider!
So, constantly wet conditions? From reading Graham NIcholl's Dwarf Campanula and Associated Genera, it does seem that Campanula excisa can be a bit of a tricky one that does prefer constant moisture... (which doesn't bode well for my potful of seedlings.) Interesting that the leaves die off before flowering.
What I see growing in seeps in the mountains here are Saxifraga lyallii, Romanzoffia sitchensis, some of the small saxifrages like Saxifraga caespitosa, S. aizoides...
Hmm, will have to think about this. I hope other members will chip in!
Calgary, Alberta, Canada - Zone 3
-30 C to +30 C (rarely!); elevation ~1130m; annual precipitation ~40 cm
I can suggest these (some are really big though):
Arabis alpina Chrysosplenium davidii Chrysosplenium macrophyllum
Parnassia palustris Pinguicula vulgaris Pedicularis oederi
Ranunculus glacialis Salix reticulata Saxifraga aizoides
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
