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.
