 Welwitschia mirabilis
Family: Welwitschiaceae
Welwitschia, Tumboa
Origin: Namib Desert
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftFull sunModerate waterDry conditionsOrnamental foliage

This is a strange, bizarre desert plant which grows from a short, thick trunk, with only two leaves that continuously grow from their base, and a long, thick taproot. After germination, the cotyledons grow to 25-35 mm in length, and are followed shortly afterwards by the appearance of the two permanent leaves. These leaves are produced opposite that of the cotyledons, and continue to grow throughout the life of the plant, eventually growing to 2-4 m long and usually becoming split into several strap-shaped sections.
