From succulents that look like rabbits to cacti resembling tiny dolphins, popular water-storing houseplants come in a variety of interesting shapes and sizes. While many succulents have a prickly, tough appearance, there’s one particular indoor plant that looks as delicate as a flower, in fact, it looks just like a rose.

Succulents Looking Like Roses

Known as Greenovia Dodrantalis (or mountain rose), the “rose succulent” is native to the Canary Islands, off the coast of Spain. The rosettes feature densely packed leaves that resemble the layered petals of a blossoming flower. Rose succulents typically grow in clusters and only reach a height of about 6 inches. Despite their small size, these hearty little plants can live a long life and don’t require much water. This makes them the perfect alternative to a classic bouquet of roses that will wither in a few days.

Rose-Like Appearance

Rose succulents are typically blue-green in color, however, we recently discovered a rare pink version that looks even more rose-like. No matter their color, Greenovia Dodrantalis are rarely found in shops, so it’s worth buying them as seeds and growing them from home. It can take up to two years before your plant develops a rose-like appearance, but once mature, the plant can produce pups (or offsets) which you can divide away from the mother to create new plants—so you’ll have an everlasting bunch of pretty rose succulents!
