'Black Rose'

Luxurious color year-round, this beautiful “Houseleek” forms a compact swirling bicolored 4” x 6” ruby rosette quickly surrounding itself with lots of densely held “pups” to form a slowly spreading small-scale groundcover. An amazingly low-maintenance drama queen, requiring only occasional water (drought tolerant once established). “Mom” rosettes bear showy pink starry blooms on short stems in Summer. Color deepens to ruby-black in cold weather! Plant this practically operatic “Hens and Chicks” somewhere you can watch the show, then sit back and enjoy! Best color in Full Sun. Great in pots and well-drained rock gardens of course. Deer resistant!
