Sempervivum virgil

I have had this sempervivum for a couple of years now and is one that I would highly recommend.  It has several things going for it:
  1. It offsets like mad so you have a lovely clump in the first year
  2. While it changes colour throughout the year it always stands out from the crowd
  3. It doesn't suffer from major die back over winter, unlike many semps
Here is it yesterday and as you can see despite me taking countless offsets off already last year it has formed a lovely clump and will only get better through the summer.
