Rhodiola rosea


Availability : Available

Description :

King's Crown, golden root or roseroot

Although Rhodiola rosea has become the cover girl for health magazines for her adaptogenic virtues - the Vikings took her to give them courage - she remains an adorable succulent for a dry rockery.

Native to coastal cliffs and rocky uplands in the northern hemisphere, Rhodiola rosea forms clumps of upright blue-green stems with oval, fleshy, scale-like leaves.

Terminal flowering of little yellow stars. Although Rhodiola rosea is considered to be slow-growing she is exceptionally long-lived.

In the garden we plant her in a rockery or similar situation (walls, paving, trough, scree, crevice or pot) together with other sun-loving, water-retaining varieties: Sedum, Sempervivum, Stipa, Sisyrinchium.

Grow in the sun in light, gravelly soil.

Too much moisture in winter can cause the base of the plant to rot. Very hardy.
