The leaves often seem to look scabby and unhealthy especially when young but it doesn't seem to effect them. We grow them in ericacous soil in a netted covered building. They do seem to dry out quite easily. If you didn't know they had such a beautiful flower you wouldn't bother. Been advise to nip out flowers in first year. Am in the north so seem to like it!

Not true alpines I expect:

Phlox (subulata?) often sold as alpine/ground cover Phlox are good in Spring, rather unbeatable but struggle with them browning off?

Lysimachia nummularia aurea- Gold nice foliage

Nepeta Grannilocks- Good varieagated foliage.
