Virginalis Haberlea rhodopensis is a dense, rosette-forming perennial with obovate to ovate-oblong, coarsely scaloped leaves, 1 1/4-3in (3-8cm) long, softly hairy above and beneath.

Care: When grown indoors, grow in soil based potting mix with added grit or sharp sand and leaf mold in bright indirect light. In the growing season water freely and apply a half strength balanced liquid fertilizer monthly.  If grown in a vertical rock garden, plant on their sides to avoid water accumulation in their rosettes and on leaves.  Protect from excessive winter moisture and cold drying winds.  Avoid root disturbance once established.
