Description for Rhoeo Spathacea Compacta

Plant height: 5 - 9 inches
Plant spread: 4 - 6 inches

Rhoeo makes an excellent and fast growing ground cover in the garden. Rhoeo is a short-stemmed tender foliage plant which makes attractive small, dense, spreading clumps. In the axils of the leaves, they produce small white flowers. 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.

Flower colours: White
Bloom time: Not defined
Max reachable height: 0.50 to 1.00 feet

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.
