A hardy and easy-to-care evergreen succulent that will dazzle you with both its silvery leaves and beautiful numerous flower spikes. It won’t even notice if you forget to water it from time to time.
Also known as Chalk Liveforever and Chalk Lettuce, this succulent plant gets its name from being coated with chalky wax. A native of Southern North America and Northern Mexico, it’s evergreen but not known for its longevity, as it usually only lives up to 3 years when cultivated.
It grows in rosettes, with pale green silvery shaded spoon-shaped leaves. It flourishes around spring, usually from May to July, and bears many pendulum-like flowers that range from white and pale green to pinkish and red petals arranged in flower spikes. This undemanding plant is also virtually disease free.
