Haloragis erecta 'Wellington Bronze'
Attractive bronze foliage is what this plant is all about. I grew it from seed last year, and wasn't sufficiently impressed to bother with the seed again this spring - but when new ones appeared all by themselves, I was happy to oblige by allowing them some garden space. I haven't found the best way to use these yet, but I think I'll come to appreciate them even more once I do.

|Susan||Feb 03, 2009||I fell in love with this plant when I saw it at the Berkshire Botanical Garden this past Summer (in Mass.) That peculiar color, the sawtooth leaves... I thought it would make a nice addition to the front row, in the same way I might use a heuchera, for example. Do you have any seeds? I hope this is the right place to leave this request.. I have just discovered your site and love it! (By the way, I am in CT zone 6).|
There's a "contact me" link at the bottom of each page :-)
|Peter Mackenzie||Feb 08, 2017||Just on Haloragis erecta- we know have quite a few via self-seeding. I think they are a great little plant with really good bronze leaves when they get enough sun.
