I nearly fell over when I first saw this amazing manfreda at Yucca Do Nursery. The 2' long, rubbery, lizard-like, very wavy, glaucous leaves are heavily spotted chocolate. Each Manfreda 'Chocolate Chips' clump lays flat on the ground, radiating out to form a starfish-like rosette. The winter deciduous 1' tall x 4' wide rosettes (in good soil) are topped with 3' tall spikes of alien antennae-like flowers in June...cool flowers and cool foliage. Well-drained soils are best for this new drought-tolerant rock garden or container gem. Manfreda 'Chocolate Chips' grows much smaller in drier, poorly prepared soils.
