Anybody have cliffrose experience?

Hello all,

I'm growing some Cowenia mexicana (aka Purshia mexicana) from seed, intending to grow them in pots. I've had the seeds cold-stratifying in my fridge for just over a month, and I noticed some roots the other day, so I guess I need to pot them soon.

Have any of you ever grown cliffrose, from seed or otherwise? Any advice would be appreciated. I haven't been able to find much in the way of cultivation instructions for this species.

Hello, Laura,

I don't have any personal cliffrose experience but saw one Internet site which offers a little bit of information:

Good luck!
Lindsey :)

Thanks Lindsey! That's certainly the best info I've been able to find!

Hi all
Last summe I went to southwest parks and saw the cliffrose , and loved it
Does anyone know if it's possible to buy seeds online and have them sent to Italy ?
