Sempervivum ‘Dea’


USDA Zone: 3-9

Plant number: 1.489.530

One of the most familiar garden perennials, yet never lacking in appeal. These form low cushions or mounds of fleshy leaves, tiny new plants appearing in a circle around the mother in the middle. This selection produces tight green rosettes with a dark red base and underside that are flushed with pink. Short spikes of pink flowers appear in summer, though many gardeners just remove these. Extremely drought tolerant once established. To start more plants simply remove a small chick or two and stick them on the soil surface at a new location.
