Azorella trifurcata is native to rocky slopes in Chile and Argentina. It is an unusual evergreen ground cover with geometric foliage that grows into a well-ordered mat of triangular, shiny, dark green rosettes.
The tiny flower is like a minuscule golden dot and quite insignificant alone, but the mass effect of the multitude of flowers is impressive.
We grow Azorella trifurcata in the sun in poor to moderately fertile, porous, moist soil.
For rockeries, alpine troughs, banks, rockfill, alpine rockeries or as edging in a raised bed.
Synonym: Azorella nivalis.
Maintenance: apply a gravel mulch.
