Hardy succulent flowers, in beautiful sunset colors! Despite it's tropical looks, this plant is a fully hardy perennial. As with other succulents, it can tolerate dry, sandy soils, and is easy to grow in almost any sunny location. These plants perform especially well in a sunny rock garden! This mixture contains a mix of rich salmon, peach, red, red with a white stripe, rich orange, deep yellow and ivory white.

Type: Hardy perennial

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Location: Full sun

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: As with many perennial seeds, these seeds benefit from a period of moist cold to help them begin to grow. This is done by giving them a cold 'winter' period (artificial or natural), and then a warming to simulate 'spring', and time to grow! Here's how this can be done:

Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Use regular soil, nothing amended with fertilizers or manure of any kind. A seed start mix can also be used if mixed with 1/4 sand. Place the seeds on the surface of your growing medium, and water. Place your container at room temperature for 2 weeks (they will not grow yet), and then place them in a refrigerator for 4-6 weeks. Once the cold period is completed, place the container back at room temperature for them to germinate. Be sure to keep the soil lightly moist during this entire germination period. Seedlings will sprout a few weeks, or occasionally several months, after the warming period. They require some patience, but are well worth the effort!
