Family crassulaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6-10)
Flowers yellow to orange
Size 6-12"

Succulent blue-green foliage is the main attribute of this plant. I'll try my seedlings in our rock garden. For now, they are doing nicely in the alpine section of my nursery area – the photo at right shows them in the second half of June, two months after setting them out.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
