One of the most familiar 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-sized rosettes with narrow, pointy leaves of ruby red to smoky grey-red. Short spikes of pastel flowers in summer. Extremely drought tolerant once established. Easily increased by just removing the small baby rosettes and replanting in a new location.
