Fast-growing evergreen succulent freely forming multiple rosettes each to 4-5” tall x 6-8” wide. This hardy variety features narrow silver-gray leaves that curl upward slightly to form an open lotus blossom shape. Leaves develop a lovely violet-colored blush with pronounced pinkish colored margins in the cooler months of the year. Pale-pink buds open to cheerful bright-yellow flowers that rise above the foliage in spring. A well-drained soil is essential for the success of this plant and while this variety prefers a sun to light shade exposure it should be protected from hot summer sun in warmer climates. Low water needs once established. Hardy to 20-25° F
