Proven Winners

A tough as nails filler for hanging baskets, troughs, combination containers and landscapes, this beautifully textured succulent is very vigorous and drought tolerant. Its lime green to chartreuse foliage pairs well with other vigorous sun loving varieties.

This one is very pretty, and stacks and layers like a Farrah "faucet hairdew"! The neighbor had a difficult growing situation, a shallow pot, attached to the top of her fence. Nothing would grow there so they installed cheap fake flowers, aaaccckkk!! I offered them this plant and it was amazing! It had a 18 inch drop, looked like a round ball, and had beautiful color.
