There are quite a few sempervivums in different stages of flower,
|Sempervivum 'Green Dragon'|
|Sempervivum 'Lilac Time'|
|Sempervivum 'Lion King'|
Thankfully all have offsets, so no need to replace them.
Those that are not flowering are looking good as well, I'm liking this small form at the moment, such perfect little rosettes.
This trough was only recently planted so they still look a bit un-natural. It's a good offsetter though, so next year should cover that end.
It is not just the semps that are happy, remember my poor little orostachys fimbriata. The foxes dug it up scattering tiny bits around the garden. The original post can be found here. These were planted up in the hope some would survive.
My first flower. It doesn't look as interesting flowering on its own, but then I am trying to re-build the clumps to fill the entire trough, so good to only loose one. This is much smaller than the normal form, part of the charm, so it's going to be a while before that is filled.
I finally I may have cracked my other nemesis, scleranthus biflorus. I think I killed three of these in the last garden, then found out the problem was treating them like succulents and not watering them. These now get watered and so far so good.
I've just spotted the label is still there, sorry Loree. These are usually either buried or removed once I have photos and can place what is where. Anyway, it has doubled in size since being planted a few months back, and has already filled the space nicely. If the success carries on and it survives winter, I have plans to use them more widely in the front garden.
While the alpines may be enjoying the cooler weather, we could do with getting the sun back again now. It is meant to be summer not Autumn.
