Once a form of latifolia, murorum achieved species status several years ago and has several different forms.  This form has shorter, thicker leaves and viviparous growth habits (pups on the bloom spike).  It is a xeric species that can handle a drier climate and is not particularly prone to rotting, making it a nice hardy plant for many climates.  Forms cool chains over time if pups are left to grow
