Jovibarba hirta

Jovibarba hirta is very like a Sempervivum (houseleek), forming a dense mat of small rosettes of fleshy, inwardly curved leaves, green with darker, red-brown streaks. The rosettes are shallowly rooted, and can easily detach themselves, rolling to a new site. Each year a few rosettes produce flower stems, each with a showy head of pale yellow, starry flowers.

Rosettes of green leaves, streaked red-brown, and pale yellow, starry flowers.
