Aethionema glaucinum

Aethionema glaucinum

Family brassicaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers pink
Size 6"
Light sun
Cultural notes well-drained soil

Pink flowers Look like they'll be fairly typical for aethionema – I have yet to notice flowers on our single surviving plant, grown from seed four years ago. The foliage is finer than that of other aethionemas we've grown – almost needle-like. Which is quite pleasing to look at up close, but easy to miss because the plant is quite small.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
