“Pig’s Ear”

Cotyledon orbiculata var. orbiculata “Pig’s Ear”

One of our most popular offerings! Everyone has a spot for this no-care, gloriously silver succulent in their dry garden or sunny I-don’t-want-to-deal-with-it spot by the side of the driveway. Great in a container too! To 30” tall and 3’ across, you get a compact, weed suppressing, highly drought tolerant shrublet of red-edged silvery white, almost circular foliage. From Summer thru Fall, it bears lots of showy pinky-apricot bells on up­right silvery stems. Wonderful combined with ever-blooming Calandrinia spectabilis and Hebe speciosa. Native to Southwestern South Africa. Fire resistant!
