Orostachys Fimbriata

 

Chinese Dunce Cap 'Fimbriata'

The Dunces Cap leaves turn brown-to-orange, covered with a haze of glaucous gray. The soft, fleshy rosettes offset slowly making an eye-catching small clump for the rock garden. In late summer, the rosettes erupt with a flower spike that is adorned with small white star-shaped flowers. It is remarkably hardy, thriving in temperatures as low as -40 degrees C.

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

They prefer very shallow soil, which works to your advantage when planting in odd and unusual containers for succulents such as hypertufa troughs.
