Degenia Species in
Family: Brassicaceae

One perennial species from the Velebit mountains of Yugoslavia.


Rarely grown but suitable for the trough, scree or raised bed, perhaps with some protection from winter wet. A good specimen plant for the alpine house, needing a gritty, loamy, not too rich rooting medium and a sunny site. Propagation by seed in late winter, or fresh seed.
