3 in stock

Hymenolepis crithmifolia. It is a soft shrub, up to 2.5 x 2 m, with finely divided, needle-like, grey-green leaves. The leaves are alternately arranged on the branches but the lower parts of the stem and branches are leafless. Masses of small, golden yellow, sweetly-scented flowers, arranged in compound heads, are borne in summer at the ends of the branches.

Smoke seed trays after sowing or soak seed in aqueous smoke extract for 24 hours. Sow seeds in a sandy, well drained soil. Sow seeds in autumn. Locality: Citrusdal. Harvest: May 2023
