The pale green plumy needle-leaved species is commonly found invading sunny herb gardens with rocky soil; this cultivar emerges with very bright purple red foliage, fading to dusky coppery green; tipped with clusters of ochre flowers fading to orange oatmeal tones. Lends a soft violet hued feathery effect to a too sunny, too rocky, baked clay problem area with great grace. A fascinating contrast groundcover for a set of Yucca.
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
