“This is a rare and unusual alpine succulent to get your hands on. There are 14 species in the Orostachys species of spiral rosette-formers with this amazing symmetry. Couch Buttons is which which forms an unusual cone-shaped flower stalk leading another of its common names, “Dunce’s Cap”.
They’re only tiny, growing up to 5cm and have a soft, grey-green colour.

Originally from Siberia and Mongolia, so naturally very cold tolerant, even surviving temperatures of -40 degrees C and having the ability to photosynthesise under snow!—this hardy gem needs excellent drainage and does best under full sun.
Each fast-growing grey-green leaf is tipped with a spine depending on season the stems bloom with small bell shaped white or pink flowers.”
