Ruschia ‘Nana’ is an evergreen succulent, and is a dwarf form of the species, Ruschia lineolata. Defining features include a very compact habit, extremely durable foliage, and the presence of small white-pink blooms in winter/spring. Water requirement is about 75% less than many turf grasses, and Ruschia ‘Nana’ requires nearly no maintenance.  This plant is excellent as a very durable lawn replacement, and also works well with pavers for walkways and patios, as well as a weed-suppressing groundcover in succulent landscapes.

Ruschia Nana Succulent plugs planting and spacing

Ruschia ‘Nana’ tolerates a range of soil types, but will establish faster in soils that have had the top 4" loosened or tilled, and that have been amended with organic matter if needed, to improve soil texture.

Planting Ruschia ‘Nana’ is simple. First, make sure site is properly prepared, and that plugs are well watered. Next, dig a hole twice as wide and the same depth as the plug. Place the plug in the hole and lightly pack loose soil around it, exposing foliage above soil level. IMPORTANT: Leave no air pockets! Plug soil not surrounded by landscape soil will dry out quickly and reduce chance of survival.
