Clumps of ruby-red to smoky grey-red rosettes provide great texture and color. Spikes of light pink blooms appear in summer. This fast growing selection thrives with little care in well-drained, rocky soil. Plant en masse for an attractive, drought tolerant groundcover. Excellent rock garden or container plant. Evergreen in mild winter areas.
