Very rare groundcover species from Southland and Stewart Island, New Zealand where this is restricted to just 4 small coastal populations comprised of just 6 individual plants.  The plants form flattened brown-gray rosettes - and spread by stolons in moist dune hollows.  Our plants have green leaves which may refer to our soils or geography and weathered our 12F winter with a bit of mulch.  Quite uncommon in cultivation and usually found in botanic gardens and a very few, ahem, exceptional specialty nurseries.
