A seedling mutation from the Denver Botanic Garden. This succulent green mat-forming plant will be profusely dotted with shimmering salmon pink flowers in a range of intensity all summer. Mesa Verde is a tough performer for a hot, dry, sunny spot, like a rock garden where the succulent foliage brings lushness to dry areas.
