    Orostachys Succulent Overview

    Orostachys is a genus containing around 12 perennial, succulent species. This genus resides in the stonecrop family, Crassulaceae, and it is closely related to the genus Sedum. These plants are monocarpic in nature, flowering once then dying, but they readily produce offsets around the main plant. This genus originates from rocky, mountainous regions in Russia, China, North & South Korea and Japan. Foliage is arranged in tight, spherical to hemispherical rosettes. Leaves are thick and fleshy, usually with pointed tips and these range in colour from green-grey to red-tinged under strong sunlight. Flowers are short-stemmed and arranged on spike-like inflorescences, they are starry in appearance and produced in the summer-autumn.
