Nertera Depressa plant

Nertera Depressa plantThe Nertera Depressa is also known as Coral Berry. This pretty Moss-like plant is fairly hardy, and is eminently suited for a sheltered position on the rockery. The soil should consist of leaf-mould and sand, and overhead sprinkling with soft water is very beneficial. In cold districts it is better to grow it in the greenhouse.

The flowers are produced in July, succeeded by orange-coloured berries. It is easily increased by dividing it early in the spring. The height of the Nertera Depressa is about three inches.
