Super-easy to care for, super cute, and super tough - little Mint Marvel houseleeks are perfect for outback gardens, waterwise gardens, rooftop gardens, high rise balcony gardens, urban gardens, and all those spaces where more delicate plants struggle. Lovely mint-sage-green leaves tipped with a blood-red point. You can see how the colour changes through the year in the image gallery.
APPEARANCE : Small neat pointy rosette succulent , mint-sage green with the tip of each leaf a deep maroon-red. Semper-vivum means "ever-living". USE IN: Rockeries, pots, green roofs, indoors, waterwise gardens. LOCATION: Plant in free-draining gritty soil in full sun for maximum leaf colour and root health. Rock-solid cold hardy and drought tolerant once established. CARE: Don't overwater; and water around - not into - the rosettes during summer heatwaves. Carefully remove dead old leaves by pulling gently. If any pups (little plants) form, remove them carefully and pot them on, or leave them in place to form a colony of groundcovering rosettes. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 5 - 7 cm H x 30 cm W. YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants with a healthy young root system and will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. Your plants may be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on. You can see an example in the image gallery.
