Othonna capensis - Little Pickles


Not quite ready


Product Details


Little Pickles (Othonna capensis) (Bailey): Pudgy, blue green leaves resemble tiny pickles. This vigorous species forms a dense mat and individual stems can grow up to 3.0' long, making it a great choice for both ground cover and hanging baskets. It produces large, daisy-like yellow blooms on tall bloom stalks. Closely related and similar looking to Delosperma (Ice Plant), Little Pickles is a strong grower and roots readily.

Othonna are easy, resilient plants that thrive outdoors with full sun and great drainage. They need protection from frost, but will happily overwinter indoors on a sunny sill. Use well-draining pots and soil. Regular water will help young plants establish roots and spread quickly, but mature Othonna can tolerate several months of drought. If you choose to propagate by hand, cut off 2.0"+ of stem and transplant it to re-root.
