Trichodiadema mirabile (White Vygie) - A small low growing succulent subshrub with a woody branching light brown stems holding 1/2 inch long glaucus green cylindrical leaves that are tipped with small bristles that dry to look a bit like a brown spine. From mid-spring through summer appear the 1 inch wide white flowers which some claim or sweetly fragrant (haven't smelled them yet ourselves!). Plant in full sun in soil in a well-drained soil and give little irrigation. Hardy to around 25 °F. Makes a great ground cover that can look like a white carpet when in full bloom in spring. It is native to the southern Great Karoo in the Western Cape Province of South Africa and is less commonly grown than its purple flowering cousin Trichodiadema bulbosum, which is often grown in a container with its large succulent roots exposed and commonly called the African Bonsai.
Price is for 3 seeds
