Alpine auriculas make distinctive cabbage-like clumps of foliage which, in spring, are topped by upright stems with domed heads of circular flowers in clear self colours, such as buff orange, plum, mauve or purple, and golden yellow in the case of 'Old Mustard'. The plants look best in a rock garden grown in groups in the shade of rocks or shrubby rock plants', but they also thrive in humus-rich, well-drained woodland borders in light dappled shade. Team them with small hardy ferns, violets and epimediums. You can also grow them in pots. Use a mixture of equal parts of John Innes No2 compost, leaf-mould or peat, and grit.
