The Garden's most successful plant grows in a blast hole on a limestone rock.
Requiring full sun, sharp drainage and an alkaline soil, this drought tolerant species is well suited to its featured garden location where it was planted as an experiment, that worked!
You may find other plants within the Eurasian section of the rock garden proving that they will grow in our acidic, basalt soil. However, the horticultural staff advise that in these locations dead patches appear on the plants. Also, that our wet and humid summers do not suit this taxon.
This species was available from Woodbank Nursery, Tasmania in the late 1980s.
