Sempervivum 'Mixed' (Large Plant)

Houseleek

Hardy Perennial

Superb evergreen succulents form dense rosettes of foliage which meld together to create a living carpet. Sempervivum come in a fabulous range of forms and colours, with some even covered in spidery webbing. In summer, mature rosettes may produce panicles of star-shaped flowers. Although individual rosettes die after flowering, they are swiftly replaced by small offsets which quickly fill the gap. Commonly known as Houseleeks, these hardy perennials are extremely drought tolerant once established - perfect for planting in wall crevices, rockeries and alpine troughs. Height: 8cm (3"). Spread: 30cm (12").

Houseleeks require extremely good drainage. Grow sempervivum plants in sharply drained, gritty soil in full sun. Hairy species particularly resent cold, wet conditions and are best provided with some protection from winter weather.
Houseleeks are drought resistant and need little attention throughout the growing season. Divide overcrowded clumps in late spring to encourage their spread.
