Rhodocoma arida is a tidy plant for drier sites. Erect narrow columns of bright blue-grey culms distinguish this species from most other restios. Its branched juvenile foliage vanishes with time, and the thin culms stand erect. Dense clumps typically reach 15cm in height, and the effect stays very vertical if watering is not too generous. Germination is greatly improved with treatment of smoke seed primer.
For the best germination results with these seeds we recommend treating these seeds with Cape Seed Primer.
