How to use it. Liveforever is native to cliffs, rocky outcroppings and other free-draining vertical sites. This accounts for its affinity for slopes, which can serve as inspiration for your own garden. It cannot tolerate standing water on its rosettes — or even on its roots — over summer, so a slope or wall that would otherwise be a troubling site is the perfect spot. Planting at an angle is preferred.
Liveforever also grows well in pots and containers. And, as with most succulents, it grows well in rock gardens. Use it as a specimen or allow its chalky color to complement and contrast other succulents; its spring inflorescence will diversify the garden greatly. Due to its preference for bright light, liveforever is not the best houseplant.
