One of the most familiar garden perennials, yet never lacking in appeal. These form a low clump of fleshy leaves, tiny new plants appearing in a circle around the mother in the middle. This bizarre selection has green leaves that curl into a tube, tipped with red during the colder months. Reminds us of a rolled tongue!
Although they will grow nearly anywhere, these prefer the sort of well-drained conditions found in a sunny rock garden or wall. Worth trying in any sort of container, even an old shoe! Clumps may be divided at any time. (Source: Perennials.com)
