Haworthia fasciata

 
Haworthia fasciata

Common name zebra plant
Family asphodelaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z9b-10)
Size 6"
Light bright shade

Small aloe relative usually grown as a houseplant. It has sturdy upright succulent leaves patterned in white bumpy ridges, and a very tidy appearance overall. Ours came as part of a succulent basket meant as an indoor arrangement, but eventually found its way into our rock garden. If we have a real zone 8b winter, it won't survive, but it may squeak by in a mild one. Our plant will probably receive more sun than it cares for. So we're throwing all kinds of suboptimal conditions at the poor thing – if it survives and thrives, we'll know we have a winner.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: back fence border
