Orostachys malacophyllus aka Dunce Cap is what some would say "the other sempervivum". Dunce cap unfortunately does not get the attention it deserves. Like sempervivium, dunce cap succulents are nearly indestructible, love dry hot conditions, and multiply easily. Dunce caps are apple green in color. With their offspring they easily form a dense mat creating an excellent weed barrier. During most winters the rosettes stay evergreen and 'close up' to form little balls. Plant in full sun for best performance in a well drained soil. Orostachys is a great garden plant but also excellent in pots and for all the succulent projects floating around on the internet. Hardiness zone 6-9.
