Plant Shapes: Cushion Rosette
1.490.450

One of the most familiar garden perennials, yet never lacking in appeal. These form a low clump of fleshy leaves, tiny new plants appearing in a circle around the mother in the middle. This selection produces large rosettes of hairy, apple-green leaves, tipped with orange-red during the colder months. Short spikes of pastel flowers in summer. Although they will grow nearly anywhere, these prefer the sort of well-drained conditions found in a sunny rock garden or wall. Worth trying in any sort of container, even an old shoe! Clumps may be divided at any time.
