What is the plant
Contrary to its name, Chinese Dunce Cap grows naturally in the cool forest valleys of the Japanese alps. One of the few succulents that call Asia its natural habitat, it’s able to survive winters under snow down to -40°C.
Chinese Dunce Cap succulent’s leaves range slightly in colour, blue or green tinted in grey, and form petite rosettes. Elegant stolons reach for viable pockets in rocks, cracks, and crevices, and fill out a pot in just a season or two. Densely-packed, budding spires grow from the centre of the rosettes and bloom with pink and/or white flowers. Chinese Dunce Cap lives in a continuously life and death cycle. Throughout the growing season, the main rosette sprouts stolons which grow small rosette on the ends. By the time the pups have rooted and grown large enough to survive on their own, the main rosette will soon begin blooming. As a monocarpic succulent, the rosette will die after blooming, but the pups live on and sprout their own stolons of pups.
