What a beautiful sight for a morning garden walk, congratulations Michael and Lori (and Jim and Anne too, looking through earlier posts in this topic) on growing super fine Eritrichium.

Seems I really have to try Eritrichum!
I have always liked to find the wild wood forget-me-not (Myosotis sylvatica) with flowers very similar to Eritrichum, but the rest of the plant is not!

Looks like your plant is more compact than mine, Michael - looks great!
Still blooming with stems elongating...

Lori, that one looks more like mine with the stems elongating a bit.  If the one that seeded itself in tufa would please bloom I could see if that made a difference. Mine are growing next to but not in, tufa.
