Rosularia platyphylla

Product Details


Rosularia platyphylla (Shrenk): One of our most popular succulents of all time, and with good reason! It is a hardy ground cover plant that can tolerate both droughts and 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 stay small and soft and tend to form mounds as they propagate. 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.

Rosularia 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 Rosularia can tolerate several months of drought. If you choose to propagate by hand, cut off a rosette and transplant it to re-root.
