Yesterday I bought this beautiful plant. It's a small grass with succulent leaves. I searched in the web, but I could't find anything about how to grow it. I discovered it doesn't want much water, and that it lives in San Diego region.
Can someone help me with advices about growing?
Thank you very much.
Ciao [wayey]

You'll find more information with with spelling Dymondia margaretae.

"Fast growing, the silver carpet forms a neat, prostrate, fairly drought-resistant ground cover, with blue-grey foliage and small, yellow, daisy-like flowers [in spring]. If not given a well-drained position the plant tends to rot and die back. It could also be used to form a ground cover between paving stones or railway sleepers. Plant the silver carpet in light, sandy, well-drained soil, adding plenty of compost. Do not overwater. Propagation by seed or division of clumps. Natural distribution: it grows in the southern Cape [of South Africa]."

Thank you very much, there was an error on the label of the plant. Hope not to kill it so fast... [Wink]
