A local nursery just got a bunch of new Sempervivums in, and I nabbed some!
I'll try to post some pix. Now to figure out where to plant current Semp & Sedum bed is getting quite crowded!

Just wanted to share my excitement!

RE: New semps!


I am happy for you - I've got new growth on mine but no new ones yet. Which named ones did you get (I can't see the names)?

Pretty cute! I wish I could stick mine in the ground in this rainy place.

Jeff, as far as I can see, the tags read Sempervivum arachnoideum (cobweb houseleek), Sempervivum 'Pink Charm,' Sempervivum hybrid 'Excalibur,' Sempervivum hybrid 'Spring Beauty,' Sempervivum 'Kalinda,' Sempervivum 'Icicle,' Sempervivum hybrid 'Excalibur' again, Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Stanfieldii,' and Sempervivum 'Red Beauty.'

RE: New semps!

Thanks for listing those for me Teatree! Sorry the text was hard to read, Jeff!
I think I may have to go back to this nursery and get few more.... Semps are doing REALLY well in my front bed, some really need to be divided. Of course, it's the unlabeled ones that are really thriving!
I bought two 'Excalibur' specimens because they seemed rather different, which I thought was kind of odd given they had the same care and source.


RE: New semps!

Wow! Those are great! I haven't seen a collection like that any any of the nurseries I've been to around here. I just love 'Red Beauty." For some reason they don't grow very well for me.

'For some reason they don't grow very well for me.'

Location, location, location. OTOH, almost all other succulent plants, with the possible exception of other cold-hardy ones, do fabulously where you are. PIG'd plants are the best.


I confess I didn't get my monocle out. I've got 'Icicle' in the ground somewhere and it's doing well the last time I looked. I also confess I don't spend enough time with them. Looking at your new plants gives me a yen to get some more - maybe they've got 'Excalibur' at Art Knapps (the only store with named Semps, and lots of 'em, as far as I've found).
