Neutral Melissa_D On May 15, 2008, Melissa_D from Pittsburgh, PA (Zone 6a) wrote:

I say neutral only because I never got to see it grow. It was my own fault, so I'll pass along my error. My Pittsburgh garden was far too wet for this plant, and something (I suspect chipmunks or bugs) ate each little leaf as fast as it could emerge from the ground. It is much better suited to the hot and dry conditions that dicentra63 mentioned.

The cutest thing about Anacyclus depressus is the dark red stripe on the underside of the white petals.

This is a very low-growing plant that loves it hot and dry. It self-seeds but not too much. Great for the area near a sidewalk, between pavers, or in a rock garden.
