Feathery-looking succulent with an attractive blue colour, very useful for growing around larger feature succulents, on green rooves, tops of walls, cracks in paving, dry and waterwise gardens. It has a charming alternative common name of trip-madam, presumably because of its popularity as a between-the-pavers planter. Mind your step!
APPEARANCE: Low-growing sprawling succulent with feathery blue-green leaves and golden flowers in summer. USE IN: Rockeries, roof gardens, waterwise beds, coastal gardens. Squeezes into small spaces, spreads to provide groundcover in tough locations. Roots along the stems so if you want more of it, encourage it to lay on the soil; and if you don't, pull it up or mulch underneath with stone chips. LOCATION: Plant in free-draining gritty soil in bright sunlight. Will grow in shade but leaf colour may not be as strong. Very happy in rocky sandy soils and exposed locations. Totally frost hardy to Arctic levels if the soil is free-draining. Water if the plant softens, droops, or wrinkles, especially in extended periods of heat. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 20 cm H x 75 cm W YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants with a healthy young root system and will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. Your plants may be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
