This low-growing succulent evergreen has stems radiating out from the central crown and rising up at their tips. Stiff, roundish blue-grey foliage is densely spiraled around the stems. From late winter to early spring flattish clusters of yellow-green flowers bloom atop the stems. This hardy plant is tolerant of very cold winter temperatures, summer heat, and aridity. Use in sunny rock gardens, as a container plant, small scale groundcover, or trailing over a wall.
