Plant details

This clump-forming perennial with fleshy, succulent leaves can spread to create a carpet of foliage. Its key feature is its silver-blue foliage in rosettes and it makes a good alternative bedding plant. The yellow-tipped, pink flowers hang from the top of long stalks in summer. It grows in sunny spots in well-drained soil and needs to be kept dry in winter. Though it does not tolerate very low temperatures it can be hardy in some areas.
