Product Description

These alpine plants are exposed to many extremes. To survive the strong winds and cold temperatures at the top of the mountains, the plants grow in a clump of tight spirals so tightly wound that, from a distance, they look like a sleeping sheep, giving them the common name "vegetable sheep." To survive the high UV levels on the exposed mountain tops, the plants use a layer of thick hairs (giving them their soft blue appearance). At certain times of the year the plants are covered with small yellow flowers. This strange plant only grows 1 inch tall. It prefers well-drained, sandy soil.

Proper name: Raoulia australis

Hardy in zones 6-9. In cooler regions you can bring the plant inside for the winter.
