Description :

Common Houseleek, Jove's beard

Sempervivum tectorum is a hardy succulent known to man since antiquity for its medicinal properties. It is native to the rocky grasslands of the European mountain ranges where it is found up to 3000 m in altitude.

It is resistant to heat, cold, prolonged droughts and will survive anything! Which is why Sempervivum tectorum has naturalized and spread throughout Europe.

At the nursery, we love its incredibly structured foliage in contrasting two-tone rosettes: Granny Smith green with black tips.

It has several uses in the garden: green roofs, old walls, pots, tubs, troughs, crevasses, rockeries, hollow tiles or stones!

Grow in full sun (even scorching) in ordinary soil that can be poor.

Its three enemies: partial shade, damp and competition.


- remove the dried rosettes after flowering, that’s all!
