| Oyster Plant|
Blue-green ovate leaves are formed on flowering stems emanating from a modest rosette of leaves. Stems lie close to the ground in 15-inch mounds, and from spring to early summer bear small bluebell-like flowers in the leaf axils. The foliage is the more important feature of this plant.
