The rock pine is a perennial succulent that is widespread throughout Japan. It grows mainly in dry rocky areas or sand and gravel fields from Nagano Prefecture to Kyushu. This charming plant is known for its unique appearance and beautiful flowers.


The packed tiny white flowers are eye-catching. Despite its toughness, the rock pine is an attractive plant that bears these delicate flowers.


Tips for growing rock pines


Choose a sunny spot and make sure it is well ventilated. It is important to recreate an environment that is similar to the rock pine’s natural habitat, such as rocky areas or sand and gravel fields.


Rock pines are usually grown from seed or cuttings. Spring is the best time for sowing seeds and summer for planting cuttings. Proper soil and temperature control are a must.


These succulents are good at handling dryness. Avoid excessive watering. Just water when the soil becomes dry. The plants have short roots and grow well in shallow pots. Remember to use well-drained soil for succulents.


The beautiful flowers and sturdiness of the succulents add to their charm as flower arrangements in tearooms. Why not add a rock pine to your garden for its unique beauty and rugged show of nature?
