Product Details

Highlights

Prometheum serpentinicum (Werdermann): A hardy rosette groundcover species that can tolerate both extended droughts and hard frosts. It has the rosette shape of Sempervivum but the matting ability of Sedum, though it is easier to manage its spread. These spring green rosettes are edged with pink and tend to form mounds as they spread. Try using them for living walls, between stepping stones, or on green roofs and you'll get a sea of small, white flowers in midsummer.

Hardy succulents need plenty of outdoor sunlight to show their best colors and maintain a tight rosette form. They thrive in gritty, well-draining soils and pots with drainage holes. They do most of their growing in the spring and summer, and will thrive with weekly watering and afternoon shade if temperatures exceed 80F. They are incredibly frost hardy and will happily overwinter under an insulating blanket of snow. Protect from heavy rains and standing water to prevent rot.
