Highlights

Green Dunce's Cap (Orostachys malacophylla): Large, glossy green rosette that develops into dense clumps of ground cover. Outstanding rock garden plant. This species goes dormant in the winter, losing all of its aboveground foliage, but returns in full force in the spring.

PLEASE NOTE: Dormant in winter months. If you order November - March, plant will arrive dormant, but will typically recover by mid-May in most areas.

Orostachys are easy, resilient plants that thrive outdoors with full sun and great drainage. Plant in raised beds or containers with drainage holes and mix 50% coarse sand, pumice, or perlite into the soil to prevent rot. Regular water will help young plants establish roots and spread quickly, but mature Orostachys can tolerate several months of drought. If you choose to propagate by hand, cut off a rosette and transplant it to re-root.
