This selection might almost be mistaken for one of the sempervivums when not in bloom. It has grey green rosettes 4 inches or more across. The individual leaves are broadly strap shaped and have somewhat scalloped margins lined with small dots of lime. Flower stems rise 1-2 feet from the older rosettes in spring, displaying white blossoms with dark centers in open sprays.
