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. It shouldn't survive a real zone 8b winter, but somehow it managed to not expire completely in our harsh freezes of January 2018 and February 2021, although it was set back severely. Our plant probably receives more sun than it cares for. So we're throwing all kinds of suboptimal conditions at the poor thing – to which it finally responded, in May of 2021, by sending up a flower-stalk. As tends to be the case with these kinds of plants, photographs can't capture the whole plant (rosette plus flowers on wiry stem) very well, but hopefully you get the picture. Clearly, the foliage is what this plant is mainly grown for.
