Yellow stardust draba (Draba rigida) This little treasure, with its tight green cushions of tiny green leaves and bright yellow flowers, is best located close to the edge of a rock or in a container garden.

To appreciate this treasure with its tiny green leaves and bright yellow flowers locate yellow stardust draba in an easily observable site - close to the edge of a rock or in a container garden. Its slow growth will reward you with tight green cushions and bright yellow starry flowers in the spring. This true miniature will thrive if given a few rocks to nestle up to. Good for rock gardens, fairy gardens and permanent containers. Xeriscape. 

Tips from the pros: Not much maintenance needed, but try to isolate it from more vigorous growing plants so that its diminutive, mounding habit can perform its best.
