Ramonda myconi - MHNT

Ramonda myconi (Pyrenean-violet[2] or rosette mullein), syn. R. pyrenaica, is a species of flowering plant in the family Gesneriaceae, which is a relictual endemite of shady, rocky places in the Pyrenees and north eastern Spain. It is a rosette-forming evergreen perennial growing to 10 cm (4 in) high by 20 cm (8 in) broad, with oval, crinkled leaves. Five-petalled purple flowers with prominent yellow anthers appear on leafless stems in spring.[3][4]

The plant is cultivated, for instance in vertical crevices where its roots are not subject to winter wetness. It has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.[5]
