We are pleased to have introduced this cute rock garden selection of the Chinese native Disporopsis pernyi, selected by Arkansas's Larry Lowman as a mutant from a batch of tissue culture Disporopsis pernyi. The 6" tall stems are heavily speckled purple, and adorned with 1.5" long, glossy green leaves. This cute plant is obscenely slow to the point that it will never be more than a Bio plant (botanical interest only). Disporopsis 'Low Man' will be treasured by those of you who like very small plants, are detail-oriented to the point of being anal-retentive, or those who have miniature trains and are looking for something new.
