Succulents are all the rage these days and this houseleek is no exception. With its cobwebbed hairs stretched taut from leaf-tip to leaf-tip, and its lightly hairy appearance overall, this is a plant that deserves careful scrutiny. Individual crowns stay small but over time increase to attractive colonies. The nob-like flowers rise up and out perhaps reaching six inches.

July, August.  3 in. x 12 in.
