Growing & Facts

Formally named as Greenovia aurea. The Mountain Rose is a very hardy and versatile small plant to grow. After its summer dormancy (photo 4) the plant opens up to form a bright green rosette of leaves with young pups developing around its base. Its most stunning time of year is during late spring and summer when the head and pups shrink resembling like a small bunch off unopened rose buds. “Hence its name mountain Rose” 

Position: Part shade / dappled shade is preferred to maintain good colour and shape. Good for shade house.

Soil and water: Water infrequently in the ground.  Avoid watering in mid to late summer to avoid rot and collapse. Water regularly in a pot or when soil is dry. Plant in sandy loam or regular potting mix or with a composted soil mix. Applying a small amount of fertilizer in autumn to promote new growth. Water well in the winter growing season but keep watering light and infrequent over the dormant summer months.
