Thank you Sheila. Hope it makes it through being covered in ice. I moved it recently, sometimes they don't do to well with ice after a recent move.
The close up of the center of the rosette makes me think of some kind of creature.

Thank you dirtdorphins. It is a great semp to grow. In spite of it's fuzzy, softer texture it thrives here in my raised beds during the months of heavy rain and cold temsp. Tough little guy. And it does feel soft and fuzzy.

I'll be on the look-out for this one and if I ever have the opportunity to bring this pet home I certainly will. I like green fuzzy pets Smiling
