Sempervivum plants typically have a rosette-shaped structure with fleshy leaves that can range in color from green to red or even purple. They often produce small, star-shaped flowers in the summer or early fall.

Growing Requirements:

Sempervivum is native to Europe and requires well-draining soil and plenty of sunlight to thrive.

There are many different types of Sempervivum, each with their own unique characteristics. Some popular varieties include Sempervivum arachnoideum, Sempervivum tectorum, Sempervivum calcareum, and Sempervivum ‘Red Beauty’. Each of these varieties has a distinctive look and requires slightly different care.

Care Tips:

To keep your Sempervivum healthy and thriving, provide them with plenty of sunlight and well-draining soil. Water only when the soil is dry to the touch, and avoid overwatering, which can cause root rot. Sempervivum is generally pest-free, but can be susceptible to rot in overly moist conditions.
