Sempervivum marmoreum 'Brunneifolium' [limited]


Not quite ready


Product Details


Sempervivum marmoreum 'Brunneifolium' (Praeger): Has a unique range of metallic colors through the seasons, from silvery pink to chocolatey bronze, with flushes of deep rose to provide winter interest. It is a prolific variety, sending out lots of new offsets or "chicks" on hot pink stolons in the spring to summer growing season. These chicks can be left to form a colony or removed and transplanted.

Hens & Chicks grow best outdoors with plenty of sunshine (and afternoon shade if temperatures exceed 80F). As hardy alpine plants, they like well-draining soil and containers with drainage holes. Once their roots have established, they can tolerate extended droughts and deep frosts down to -20F. Sempervivum are monocarpic, so each rosette will only bloom and go to seed once in its lifetime of several years. The chicks will live on, however, which is how it got the Latin name Sempervivum, or "always alive".
