Description :

Tight rosettes with silver highlights

Sempervivum, from the Latin “semper” for “always” and “vivum” for “alive”, was well-named by the botanist Linnaeus, and has some fifty species native to high altitude, rocky environments in Europe, the Caucasus, and Asia Minor. There are dozens of hybrids.

By developing succulent foliage, these species, known commonly as Hens and Chicks, have been able to adapt to very difficult conditions where few plants can survive. This means they avoid competition and are able to colonize cracks and crevices on rocky scree.

Over time, Sempervivum 'Lively Bug' grows into a little clump of tight rosettes with silvery highlights.

For rock gardens, alpine rockeries, walls, gravel gardens, troughs and pots. Grow in the sun in poor, dry soil. Adding a bed of gravel will ensure proper drainage in damp periods.
