Six-month-old AberLasting (left) planted in October 2015 into an unfertile, dry and bony site. The plant is expressing itself similar to a Caucasian clover below ground, with new plants growing off the parent plant rhizomes. These new plants are then establishing tap roots measuring down to at least 200mm.
