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 is a heavy producer and features bright apple green rosettes with dark purple tips. Extremely drought tolerant once established. To start more plants simply remove a small chick or two and stick them on the soil surface at a new location.
