This plant, Helichrysum petiolare (licorice plant) was recommended to me for our dry, arid, hot, tropical climate. We're in a rain shadow, so we miss out on rain a lot when other places get it, though sometimes we also get dumped on, turning the area into a virtual lake for a few hours. So I'd be planting this stuff primarily in raised areas and at the tops of my swale mounds to hold soil.
But I'm having a tough time finding seed. I don't think I can find plants here (anything not native or of the well known species is hard to find in Haiti). I have a US address and delivery here is pretty smooth, though it takes a couple of weeks. But that's probably my best bet. Any advice on where to find seeds for this plant?

Perhaps on my computer. I'll try that later.
Tick check! Okay, I guess that was just an itch. Oh wait! Just a tiny ad:
