Cold Hardy Succulent

Thank Goodness!!! When I was wandering around my rural landscape last weekend, I found some interesting views of a succulent that we have been growing for several years in our succulent garden. I’ve always loved this plant. It is about 3-feet tall and has such character. But when I found it covered in ice, it had some wonderful macro photography opportunities:

Like most all of the plants I found that morning, there were some icy buds on the plant:
