Orostachys fimbriata 'Dunce Cap'

$ 16.00 Sold out
Size: 4"

Orostachys fimbriata, also known as the Fringed Dunce Cap, is a striking and unique succulent that brings a touch of architectural drama to any garden or indoor collection. This plant is characterized by its distinctive rosettes, which are formed by slender, pointed leaves with delicate, fringed edges, giving it a somewhat whimsical appearance. The leaves display a beautiful range of colors, from deep green to silvery-gray, often with a blush of pink or purple when exposed to full sun.

Native to the mountainous regions of China, Korea, and Russia, Orostachys fimbriata is a hardy plant that adapts well to a variety of environments. It thrives in well-draining soil and is particularly suited to rock gardens, alpine gardens, or as an eye-catching addition to a succulent collection. The plant prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate more direct sun in cooler climates.

One of the most enchanting features of Orostachys fimbriata is its flowering habit. In late summer or early autumn, it produces tall, slender spikes adorned with tiny, star-shaped flowers. These blooms, typically white or pale pink, add a delicate contrast to the robust form of the rosettes.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
