Sempervivium...I've got the itch

boldcolors(Zone 5 Ut)March 11, 2008

I'm looking for names of semperviviums that have good to bright color in the yard during the winter months (considerng I'm in zone 5).Anyone had some that brightens their day on a dreary winter's morn? Pink, Blue, Yellow, Red, Purple, Violet and Orange.... anything eyecatching and colorful.Thanks for your help.

A few notes taken during winter of these semps with color:
'Flasher' w/brite medium red color;
'Lilac Time' w/pale chalky plum coloring;
'Lilac Queen' w/deep plum coloring;
'Merkur' w/red plum coloring;
'Mondstein w/greenish plum coloring;
'Pacific Hazy Embers' w/brite burgundy but fuzzy coloring
These semps were purchased from semp nursery in Oregon called Squaw Mountain Gardens. Hope this helps.

I would love to give you some suggestions but during the winter months here in Manitoba, Canada all my semps are under the snow.

While not a sempervivium, Sedum Angelina, is my bright spot and is planted around my sempervivium. In the winter it gets a rosie and golden glow. I love it winter and early spring.
