Rungia, which is a Papua New Guinean native, is low growing and rather attractive in the garden or pot, whichever suits your fancy.
It is perennial, and clumping and gets its common name from the delicate mushroom flavour of the leaves.
The dark green leaves are oval to spear-shaped, thick and often slightly crinkled.
Mushroom Plant will tolerate most soils although it prefers a friable to rich loam and it dislikes wet feet.
Plant it in full sunwith a little shade in the middle of the day.
It will survive light frosts with only minor damage and can get a little 'leggy' if not pruned back often.
As prunning means 'food on the table', it is not gardening chore but more of a regular harvest.
Potted Plant $5.50
