Print Plant

  

One of the most familiar garden perennials, yet never lacking in appeal. It forms a low clump of fleshy leaves, tiny new plants appearing in a circle around the mother in the middle. This selection produces rosettes of frosty grey-green leaves, tipped with blood red in colder months. Short spikes of pink flowers in summer. Extremely drought tolerant once established. Easily increased by just removing the small baby rosettes and replanting in a new location.
