Description for Rhoeo Golden, Rhoeo Spathacea Sitara Gold
Rhoeo makes an excellent and fast growing ground cover in the garden. Rhoeo is a short-stemmed tender foliage plant which makes an attractive small, dense, golden color spreading clumps. Rhoeos also enjoy partial shade to full shade. Rhoeos are normally grown due to the fact that they are very drought tolerant.
If you live in an area that normally gets large amounts of rain, your Rhoeo may not grow well in your garden no matter what you do. You can either plant them in a container or you can try planting them under trees. Trees tend to suck up much of the water under their canopies and provide shade, both conditions will make your Rhoeo happy.
Planting and care
Rhoeo spathacea can be propagated by seeds, cuttings, or division. In most areas, Rhoeo is considered an annual, though, in fact, it is a tender perennial. This means that it can only tolerate temperatures down to about -6 degree Celsius before they are killed off. Keep in mind that this is the temperature that will kill them.
Overwatering should be prevented when only when the soil feels dry to touch. Proper drainage facilities should be provided to the plant otherwise the roots rot.
Caring for Rhoeo Golden
- Water the tricolor rhoeo once per week.
- Water slowly and deeply down through the roots.
- In the first growing season, it is especially important to maintain a consistent watering schedule to ensure a strong, healthy root system.
- During the warm months, let the top soil dry out between waterings, but not the bottom soil.
