Description This variety is absolutely striking with its bright yellow flowers and contrasting orange center against blue-green pads. It blooms in mid summer for 3-4 weeks. Var. 'N3Chicamauga' prefers xeric (dry) conditions. It is great plant for those hard, compact, dry, and hot conditions where nothing else will grow. It does extremely well in a well-drained planter that in full sun that are not watered. Thanks to friend retired State botanist Jim Allison for leading us to collect a pad of this natural hybrid.
