Anacyclus Depressus is the perfect plant for the rock gardens with its low mat-forming habit. Its foliage is very fine and delicate, grey-green in colour. In late spring, short stems bearing red buds appear, which eventually open to pure white flowers with yellow centers and red on the reverse. Surprisingly, it can only reach a maximum height of 5 cm and spread of 10 cm. All parts of this plant are highly toxic if ingested. The sap may cause skin irritation. This plant has been awarded The RHS Award of Garden Merit (AGM)
Suggested Care: Anacyclus Depressus should be planted in well-drained, loamy soils and positioned in full sun, as the flowers will stay closed in dull weather . This wonderful plant can become drought tolerant once established. This plant must be protected from excessive winter wet. While it is not a long-lived plant, it will re-seed where happy.
Planting Instructions: Break up the soil well before planting and dig a hole twice the size of the pot. Remove plant from the pot by tapping the rim of the pot in ‘up side down’ position. Do not pull the plant from the pot. Firm soil after planting and water regularly for the first month.
