Is Orostachys spinosa Strawberry Spring a valid cultivar.

I think it is as doing a bit of research I found it on 2 reputable German sites but I'll call the experts. @valleylynn @goldfinch4

I agree with Julia, it looks to be a legitimate cultivar to me. It's also known as O. spinosa "red form" in culture.

You might have better luck in the spring as they are in dormancy during winter.

There aren't many sellers in the US of unusual orostachys, or collectors for that matter either. Hopefully in the spring I'll have some Orostachys japonica 'ex Tsushima' for sale, if you're interested in that kind.

Greg, Chris's Orostachys are very nice. I got the one pictured in her above post last year from her. It is awesome.
