One of the most familiar and easiest to grow garden perennials, yet never lacking in appeal. It forms a low clump of fleshy leaves, tiny new plants appearing in a circle around the mother in the middle. This selection produces medium rosettes with pointed grey-green leaves tinted lavender-rose. The rose colour deepens in cooler temperatures. Pink flowers may appear in summer. Extremely drought tolerant once established. Easily increased by just removing the small baby rosettes and replanting in a new location.
