Orostachys iwarenge
“Chinese Dunce Cap”

Orostachys iwarenge “Chinese Dunce’s Cap” Orostachys iwarenge “Chinese Dunce’s Cap”

One of our favorite rarities here at “Annie’s,” it’s really like growing 3 plants in one. Beginning as a low dense spreading mat (to 12” across) of lovely small blue-grey rosettes, it soon forms a multitude of totally cool pinkish conical spires inspiring one to imagine a little elfin cityscape. In late Summer-Fall, the spires reach 6” tall, blossoming with pink & white frilly flowers much like a miniature “Tower of Jewels”. Charming! Ideal for containers, rock gardens & hey-fairy gardens! Will die after flowering but it self-sows & makes side rosettes to repeat its magic every year!
