Description

A cultivar of Sempervivum tectorum.

This particular variety features a bright-green base colouring and, under strong light, will turn a burgundy-red. The rosette is compact and neat, forming many rows of small, triangular leaves. Little hairs will form on the ends and throughout the edges of the leaves to protect the plant from extreme sunlight. Monocarpic, meaning it will flower and die, also known as the ‘death bloom’, but as it offsets readily, you can expect many pups to replace the mother. If kept in correct conditions, these succulents can resist temperatures down to -15°C.

Ready to plant with other Sempervivum, making excellent carpets under taller succulents like Aeoniums.
