Behold, one of the most sought after succulents in the world! Forming a single, ground-hugging rosette 2-3’ high and wide with grey-green leaves radiating outwards either clockwise or widdershins from a central 5-point star. Not a beginner plant - like all divas, it has needs. Firstly, provide exceptional drainage. Secondly, keep its roots cool. So, for those in the SF Bay Area and up along the coast – you’re good, consider planting on a slope to avoid wet feet. For areas where temps regularly exceed 80 degrees F, it’s a good idea to pot it up in a thick container (wood or glazed ceramic is best) and position in filtered sun until the days cool down. Flowers irregularly in Summer producing a 1’ tall multi-branching spike topped with hummer attracting flowers that vary in color from red to yellow. Deer resistant. Drought tolerant. Super cool.
