Chaenostoma uncinata
Chaenostoma uncinata

Every so often we are tempted by the unknown. We poured over the internets AND our substantial library of books devoted to South African flora & we got next to NO information on this heretofore unknown shrub. Did that dissuade us? Gosh, no! Growing something completely foreign is one of the great joys of gardening, isn’t it? So here’s the skinny: cousin to Bacopa, this petite shrublet blooms from late Winter into Spring, with pretty mauvish pink blooms loosely arranged at the end of its branches. We can only guess at its ultimate size, drought tolerance & peculiarities. We’ll let you know. In the meantime, we very much encourage you to experiment!
