An endemic of Tasmania. Seeds of this species were sent by Harold Comber during his expedition to Tasmania 1929-30. In his Field Notes he wrote: ‘Common at 3,500-4,000 ft in most exposed places on moors, rocky forests or hill-sides. Will be rather slow growing, but good on the rock garden. Probably will appreciate some peat. Should be perfectly hardy.’ Comber rated it highly, but it has never become established in cultivation.
