Marcetella

Marcetella is a small genus with only two species within the rose family (Rosaceae) endemic to Tenerife (Canary islands) and Madeira. Both species are semi evergreen, woody, branching shrubs with ornamental feathered, bluish-green leaves and dense pendulous inflorescences with small flowers followed by densely packed, decorative winged seed capsules. They are easily grown as pot or container plants in any well drained, rocky soil in full sun throughout the year. Keep plants drier in winter in full sun and at a minimum of some 10°C. If plants become too large, they can be cut back easily in early spring.
Sow seeds flat on any well drained, rock-sandy soil. Place pots in a sunny to partially shaded spot. Keep seedlings always slightly moist from beneath. Transplant to larger pots after the second pair of feathered leaves.
20 seeds per package.
