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.
