, native to the western coastal mountains from Canada to northern California, has two well-known cultivars, namely 'Capo Blanco' and 'Carnea'. 'Capo Blanco' is a cold tolerant and drought tolerant perennial that forms low-growing mats of tiny powdery white rosettes atop stems. The leaves are silvery white with reddish margins. Typically grows on ledges or cliffs. Sprays of yellow star-shaped flowers during summer months. Excellent for windowsill culture, or as a silvery accent for rock gardens, dish gardens or strawberry pot plantings. Can be combined with other Sedums
and with Sempervivums
to create alpine plantings. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Will grow in sandy, poor soils. Bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Quite cold tolerant, but best to provide protection to prevent scarring.
Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.
