Small rosettes (2"-3") quickly produce offsets, form a nice clump in a couple years. 1" flowers are white with light pink to brownish or greenish mid-stripe on the petals, on a wiry stem up to 8" tall. Small number of blossoms on each stem, but a large clump produces many stems. Does well in light shade or with some sun, which seems to encourage more flower production. Very easy as long as you withhold water when they're dormant, and they go dormant in very hot weather as well as cold. Good in shallow containers, and don't mind being quite crowded - they keep growing past the point where they're spilling over the side. Eventually they get so tightly packed that it's hard to get water through them to the soil, then you need to repot.
