Mushroom Plant, also known as Rungia klossii, is a herbaceous plant native to Australia, New Guinea, and some Pacific Islands. It has narrow, lance-shaped leaves that are typically dark green in color and grow to be about 4-6 inches long. The plant has small, purple flowers that grow in clusters at the ends of the stems. It grows to be about 1-2 feet tall and has a spreading habit, forming clumps as it grows.
In terms of growing conditions, Mushroom Plant prefers moist, well-drained soil and partial to full shade. It is not winter hardy and will need to be brought indoors or protected during cold weather. To cultivate it successfully, a grower will need to provide adequate moisture and shade, as well as protect it from frost.
Mushroom Plant is not known to be edible, and there is no information available on its medicinal uses. However, it can be used as a ground cover plant in a garden or landscape, as it spreads quickly and forms dense clumps. It may also provide habitat and food for certain types of wildlife, such as insects and small mammals.
