Heliotropium curassavicum (Seaside Heliotrope)


Sharing is caring!


Native low-growing succulent has bluish leaves and white, yellow and purple flowers from at least March to October. They look great by moonlight. Great candidate for rock garden and hanging baskets. The Xerces Society ranks it as especially valuable to native bees. Also known as Quail Plant, the seeds are favored by birds. It thrives in extremely dry, saline and high calcium soils which kill most plants  Native to AL , AR , AZ , DE , FL , GA , IL , LA , MD , ME , MO , MS , NC , NE , NJ , NM , NY , PA , SC , TX , VA  . .It’s native range extends southward to Argentina and Chile. It is eaten as food and used medicinally in some areas. Rare in GA and SC, I searched long and hard for this plant before finding one small native population in Charleston Co., SC.  We propagated our plants from that one.
