Vegetable sheep. A strange common name to go with a strange plant, this one falls into our “weirdo plant” category. Perhaps the lowest growing plant we produce, Raoulia absolutely hugs the ground growing no more than 1” high. In ideal situations plants can spread up to 3’ across, creating a dense carpet that covers rock and soil alike. Diminutive silver-green leaves are held in tight proximity to one another and tiny paper-like flowers may appear in summer. Plant in full sun in sharply drained soils and provide moderate water. Established colonies must have protection from heavy winter rains, or rot will ensue. Hardy to 20F. New Zealand.
