Azorella trifurcata 'Nana'
Common Name: Cushion Bolax

This unusual South American plant looks like a shiny, plastic network of small feathery foliage. It must be touched to be believed! Cushion bolax slowly spreads to form an intriguing groundcover that sports tiny yellow flowers in summer. Requires excellent drainage. Perhaps hardy to zone 3. Also known as Bolax gummifer or B. glebaria.
