MCG Succulent Trifecta™ Kit - Burning Embers (Designed by Kat McCarthy, The Succulent Eclectic): A DIY arrangement kit that includes three different outdoor/hardy succulents in 2.0" pots. Each variety is carefully chosen to be fully compatible, helping to ensure long-term growing success. Extra soil is included to help transplant into a larger container. Premium containers or top dressing can be added on to the kit using the options above.
The Burning Embers Trifecta begins with an extraordinary Sempervivum. This plant flames scarlet in the heat of the summer sun, which makes it the Core of this succulent design. The fine, white filaments that form the characteristic cobwebs wreath both the “hen” and the many, many “chicks” that surround it like delicate wisps of smoke. Beautiful on its own, it positively glows paired with the Complement of the arrangement, an exquisitely formed Sempervivum rosette in pale tones that seem to smolder. Sparking off the two very different rosettes, the fiery Sedum burns bright yellow in full sun. This Character dances across the soil to tumble over the edge of a container or weave through the stones of a rock garden.
This Trifecta is recommended for outdoor growing with plenty of sunlight to show off their best colors. Sempervivum do most of their growing in the spring and summer, and will thrive with weekly watering and afternoon shade if temperatures exceed 80F. They are incredibly frost hardy and will happily overwinter under an insulating blanket of snow. Protect from heavy rains and standing water to prevent rot.
Plant in a container with a drainage hole and use a gritty, well-draining soil. Water deeply 2-4 days after planting. Don't water again until the soil is completely dry and the leaves just start to feel flexible.
