Size: 2"

Introducing the exquisite Orostachys spinosa f. minuta, a captivating succulent native to the rocky crevices and alpine regions of Asia. This plant is a true marvel of nature, with its spiral arrangements of silvery-green leaves that culminate in sharp, pointed tips, giving it a striking resemblance to a miniature pinecone or a sea urchin. The leaves are densely packed around the center, creating a compact rosette that can reach up to 4 inches in both height and width. The texture of the leaves is somewhat fleshy, yet firm, adding to the plant's rugged charm.

What sets Orostachys spinosa f. minuta apart is its resilience and adaptability. It thrives in rocky, well-drained soil, making it an ideal candidate for rock gardens, green roofs, or as a unique addition to a succulent collection. Despite its delicate appearance, this plant is tough and can withstand harsh conditions, including frost, making it a versatile choice for outdoor gardens in cooler climates.

In late summer to early fall, the Orostachys spinosa f. minuta surprises with a stunning display of tiny, star-shaped flowers that emerge from the center of the rosette. These flowers, usually in shades of yellow to pale green, add a delightful contrast to the silvery foliage and attract a variety of pollinators. After flowering, the mother plant typically dies, but not before producing offsets that will continue its legacy.

Whether nestled among rocks in an alpine garden, perched in a container on a sunny patio, or displayed in a minimalist indoor arrangement, Orostachys spinosa f. minuta is sure to captivate and impress with its unique form and enduring spirit.


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!
