Start your gardening hobby with this super-easy plant, happy to grow in the toughest situations and still look good. Sempervivums get their common name houseleek because they grow on house rooves - so if they will grow there, they will grow in other dry, exposed, hot locations too!

Give them a little TLC and they really shine - here, in Strawberry red (a pinky-burgundy) and Kiwi green. You'll get more berry in hot sun and more kiwi in cool shade. You can see how the colour changes through the year in the image gallery.

Sempervivum Chick Charms® 'Strawberry Kiwi'™ - houseleek

APPEARANCE : Small neat pointy rosette succulent , shaded fresh 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.
