detailed seed-starting info below

Succulent species that likes to sink its roots into tight crevices on rocky ledges. Native to the middle east. The seedlings, shown at right bunched closely together in a pot that I surface-sowed, are distinctly glaucous; I've not noticed this in photos of mature specimens, so I guess they go for a more even green as they progress with life. None of my seedlings made it through their first winter, so I'm trying again. This time with fewer seedlings to a pot, so the individuals grew a bit more robust. The photo above is a seedling newly planted in our rock garden.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
