How do you like your cocktails? We like ours in the sun, year round, with lots of colour. We like them on ice too - which is handy, as sempervivums are totally frost hardy. You can see how the colour changes through the year in the image gallery.Sempervivums are known as houseleeks because they grow on the rooves of houses, and can survive on the smell of an oily rag. So you can see what low-maintenance plants they are! Great for green roof and green wall projects, rockeries, waterwise gardens, indoor pots and terrariums.
DESCRIPTION: Small neat pointy rosette succulent, deep maroon foliage tipped with lime green. Semper-vivum means "ever-living". USE IN: Rockeries, pots, green roofs, and indoors. LOCATION: Plant in well drained soil in a full sun position for maximum leaf colour. Super cold hardy and drought tolerant once established. CARE: Don't overwater. Carefully remove dead old leaves from the base of the rosette. If any pups (little plants) form, remove them carefully and pot them on. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 10 cm H x 10 - 20 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.
