Hypertufa (a modified concrete mix made with cement, peat moss and Perlite) was invented and used heavily in England the early 1900's as a lighter-weight alternative to concrete. Serendipitously, the porous rock-like nature of hypertufa and its natural cragginess makes an ideal home for plants that require fast drainage, such as alpine rock garden plants and conifers.
Your planter will weather and become more stone-like in appearance over time, with natural outdoor aging. While there's no guarantee, moss often grows on hypertufa containers in humid or moist locations, making them look even more like natural rock.
