(1 customer review)

$7.50$50.00

Family:  Aster (Asteraceae)

Hardy to Zones 8 to 11, otherwise grown in pots and brought in for the winter, protected from frost.

Miniature creeping perennial found originally in the highlands of Laikipia province near Mount Kenya.  Typified by succulent red stems, aerial rootlets and tiny yellow coneheads with radiating yellow petals, the plant is a joy to taste, cultivate, and simply have around. Traditional usage (upcountry tribes, Kenya): gum disease and toothache, malaria, water purification. Plant prefers moist to sodden soil in sun to part shade and is an excellent grass competitor.  Easily grown in garden, greenhouse or in a pot on a sunny windowsill.  Space plants 1 foot apart.

Potted plant, Certified Organically Grown
