Jewels of Opar

Old-fashion garden plant with eye-catching mounds of chartreuse-colored succulent leaves and sprays of delicate, pink flowers that turn into shiny jewel-like beads. Flower panicles are ideal as fresh or dried cut flowers, filling out bouquets. As an added bonus, the thick leaves are edible with a mild, tender texture the entire season. Works well in containers, hanging baskets, and in the garden. Also known as Fame Flower. Grows to 30”.
