Chondropetalum tectorum

Chondropetalum

Chondropetalum tectorum full sun

This long-lived plant belongs to the Restionaceae, a family of rushlike evergreens from the Cape region of South Africa. Papery chocolate-brown bands and long lasting dark brown seed heads contrast with the wiry, deep green stems and small greenish inflorescences. Ideal for low maintenance gardens, this sculptural beauty is hardy to 20° and prefers sandy, well drained soil and dry summers. It has also, however, withstood our wet winters.

Size: 5' 0" high x 5' 0"–7' 0" wide; hardy to zone 9.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
