Callianthemum

Just coming into flower is Callianthemum kernerianum from the limestone hills of the Monte Baldo.

Very sweet, but looks more like  a daisy than a buttercup  ;D

In flower here in Lancashire (U.K.) as well ...

I know it's quite presumptuous of me to ask, but if anyone has a few extra seeds later in the season, I'd gladly pay for them. It's almost impossible to get germination on this genus unless one plants fresh seed, and since this particular (and particularly beautiful) member of the genus is almost never grown here in the Northeast US, I haven't been able to get seed anywhere. I have a few C. anemonoides, which is almost as nice a plant, but C. kernerianum is on my wish list, and has been for over a decade.

Nothing presumptuous about it Peter ... we all have our desires and they need to be fulfilled.  I will bear you in mind at the appropriate time.  :D

Cliff, I really like this 'almost' colour!

My 2 favorite genera are the Ranunculaceae and the Asteraceae. Callianthemum combine them, accounting for my particular fondness for them. I will pray for a bumper crop of seeds, Cliff!

The better known C. anemonoides growing on alkaline soils in Austria. Here in a pink form.

Love this colour!
Is this genus easy from seed? I think Peter mentioned it must be fresh...
