Cotyledon orbiculata undulata
Cotyledon orbiculata undulata or otherwise known as the silver crown is a very sculptural succulent. As you can see it produces these incredible oyster shell-like leaves that neatly overlap each other. Each leaf has this silver like dust (bloom) that protects it against strong sunlight.
In time they will produce offsets. They also produce a beautiful array of orange and yellow bell-shaped flowers on a tall flower stem in mid to late summer.
All Cotyledon species originated in South Africa and seem to be semi-hardy. Cotyledon orbiculata has been known to survive temperatures as low as -6°C for short periods of time.
They make awesome potted succulents on their own or you could try them with a mix of other succulents such as Echeveria, crassula and sempervivums to create your own little low maintenance succulent landscape.
