W purchased this plant labeled only as "Tetramerium sp." (Mexico collection) from the nursery area at Peckerwood Garden. It's more an oddity than a horticultural performer, but I'm pleased to have it around for now, to observe its unusual structures. Now in its second year in our garden, it is growing more robust, and has also self-seeded modestly. That surprised me, because I had found it difficult to find many seeds, and only managed to grow one seedling in my operations this winter. Once again, Ma Nature does it better.
