Sempervivums - house leeks - grow in the toughest situations with almost no looking after, and still look good. Give them a little TLC and they really shine. Autumn Apple is a soft deep green with each leaf outlined in wine-red. You can see how the colour changes through the year in the image gallery.
APPEARANCE : Small neat pointy rosette succulent , shaded deep apple green with the tip of each leaf a deep burgundy-red. Semper-vivum means "ever-living". USE IN: Rockeries, pots, green roofs, indoors, waterwise gardens. LOCATION: Plant in free-draining gritty soil in full sun for maximum leaf colour and root health. Rock-solid cold hardy and drought tolerant once established. CARE: Don't overwater; and water around - not into - the rosettes during summer heatwaves. Carefully remove dead old leaves by pulling gently. If any pups (little plants) form, remove them carefully and pot them on, or leave them in place to form a colony of groundcovering rosettes. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 5 - 7 cm H x 30 cm W. YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants with a healthy young root system and will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. Your plants may be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on. You can see an example in the image gallery.
