About Rhoeo Spathacea Compacta

Rhoeo makes an excellent and fast growing ground cover in the garden. Rhoeo is a short-stemmed tender foliage plant which makes attractive small, dense, spreading clumps. In the axils of the leaves, they produce small white flowers. Rhoeos also enjoy partial shade to full shade.Rhoeos are normally grown due to the fact that they are very drought tolerant.If you live in an area that normally gets large amounts of rain, your Rhoeo may not grow well in your garden no matter what you do. You can either plant them in a container or you can try planting them under trees.

Trees tend to suck up much of the water under their canopies and provide shade, both conditions will make your Rhoeo happy.
