Another longer-lived and rare Himalayan species with a bit broader petals and leaves. Slow spreading, forming small mats of mid- to dark green foliage. Floriferous and re-blooming in fall. In our experience over the last 12 years, L. sorachayi has been the best performer for us. We used to sell this as L. jorachay. Turns out we missred the label and it should be L. sorachayi. However, searching literature (online and books) turns up nothing whatsoever. The source we got it from in 2003 lost it in the meantime and tells me they received seed from Josef Halda in 2000 with that name. So albeit a mystery plant, nonetheless one of the most "resilient" Edelweiss, if any Edelweiss can be called that. BEFORE ORDERING, PLEASE read very important information about growing Edelweiss on top of the Edelweiss main page.
