Jovibarba heuffelii 'Gold Bug'

These plants- Jovibarba heuffelii - are similar to echeverias and are grown in a similar manner. There are three accepted species within the genus Jovibarba and heuffelii is the one which doesn't produce babies in the same manner as the rest of  the semps and Jovibarbas. In this case, division requires that the plantlets be cut apart with a clean, sharp knife.
This is the cultivar 'Gold Bug'. The color will vary considerably during different times of the year, but right now they're just glowing with color. We will be offering these at the June sale of the Oregon Cactus & Succulent Society and on line.
Enjoy your plants!
