The xSemponium ‘Sienna’ was bred here at Surreal Succulents, an intergeneric hybrid cross of Sempervivum ‘Green Ice’ and Aeonium ‘Ice Warrior’.
xSemponium ‘Sienna’ is a fast-growing succulent that grows into a stunning conical shape, it produces a large central rosette with layers of evenly spaced smaller rosettes. The leaves are slender with the ends of the foliage becoming more spoon shaped. One of the most outstanding features of the xSemponium ‘Sienna’ is the colour, it has beautiful Sienna reds in the spring and summer, which intensify and become a vibrant electric red when positioned in strong sunlight. Overal this succulent is by far one of the most attractive hybrids we have ever created at the nursery, the way the leaves aluminate when the sunlight hits them is like nothing else, a truly stunning plant worthy of a prime location in the garden.
They are incredibly easy to grow, we have found them to grow as fast or even faster than Aeoniums, they have taken all of the best features from both parents to give them incredible hybrid vigour. For us they grow year-round without a dormancy period. The eventual size is 30-40cm high and 30-40cm across.
They make beautiful plants in any collection and thrive in a free draining peat free soil mix.
xSemponium ‘Sienna’ bred by Daniel Michael of Surreal Succulents and is named Sienna after Mark Lea of Surreal Succulents first daughter.
The official launch is at RHS Chelsea flower show 2021 and will entered into the plant of the year competition.
