Jovibarba Overview

A genus containing currently 1 accepted species of succulent evergreen perennial plant in the Crassulaceae family endemic to the mountains of Southeastern Europe. Like their close relatives the Sempervivums, they form mats of colourful fleshy-leaved domed rosettes and reproduce by forming offsets that readily root in addition to producing seeds from the star-shaped summer flowers. They are grown as rockery or container plants and in alpine houses.
