Genus of about 12 species of evergreen, mound- or carpet-forming perennials, found among rocks or scree, and in coniferous woodland from Europe to C. Asia. They have small, obovate to oblong, entire or toothed, hairy, mid-green leaves, and few-flowered racemes of cross-shaped, 4-petalled, colourful flowers, usually borne in abundance in spring.
