Azorella-trifurcata-Nana

                         

Azorella trifurcata ‘Nana’ is an unusual evergreen cushion of tight rosettes feel a bit like rubber to the touch. It forms a very low groundcover of 1-2” high, spreading slowly over time. The unusual yellow blossoms appear in late spring and early summer. Hardy to –10 degrees F. Native to Chile. Apiaceae

This is an undemanding plant that does best when grown in full sun in well-drained soil. It has been a reliable performer in our scree bed, rock gardens and has even overwintered and grown well in our perennial bed. It also works well in troughs and containers. Versatile!

There has been some confusion in the nursery trade and this plant is sometimes sold as Bolax gummifera ‘Nana’ however there are subtle differences between the two plants.
