Rare plant from New Zealand, largely confined to catchment of the Clarence River, growing on slopes and valley floors from 3,600-5,000' in Nelson, Marlborough and N. Canterbury Mountains -- and, indeed, looking very much like pickle weed. A densely branched little "whipcord" -- usually under 15" -- with light green leaves and white flowers in early summer on upright branches and branchlets. A very architectural little plant. The mat-like growth is ideal for ground cover. Sun to part sun, good drainage and normal water.Has been reported frost hardy into upper USDA zone 7. Plantaginaceae
