Centaurium scilloides

Pretty pink flowers for the fairy garden, miniature garden, and trough garden.  Adorable little pink tulip-shaped buds are held upright above glossy green foliage.  Open flowers show four pure pink petals with a yellow center.  Flowers tend to open in the sun and keep their tulip form in the shade.  A member of the Gentain family with alpine roots, likes full sun in cooler climates and at least afternoon shade in hotter climes.  Can be short lived as a perennial, but may reseed lightly.  Grows to about 2" tall and 2-3" wide.  A lovely plant to add flowers and color to miniature gardens and fairy gardens.
