This fantastic member of the Crasulaceae family is native to the Canary Islands. Forms a dense mound of small green-leaved rosettes.  Grows only approx. 4-5 inches high, spreading to approx. 8-10 inches.  In summer, very cool and unusual star-shaped flowers are held above the plant, on thin stems.   After flowering, keep on the dryer side to allow a rest period for the hot season.  when cooler weather returns in fall, the plant will start actively growing again and will appreciate a bit more water.  perfect for fairy gardens or container plantings, staged with rocks.
