Neutral palmbob On Mar 30, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Haven't had much luck with this plant- looks great once established, but nurseries claim it's drought tolerant, and I have not found it to be the case. Oh well. Nice grass-like plant with tall, globoid 1" diameter clover-like flowers that pop up about 3-4" above the turf. Good for pots, borders and rock gardens.
