Sempervivum 'Pacific Blue Ice'

Hens and Chicks

Plant Type:


Sempervivum 'Pacific Blue Ice' - Evergreen rosettes are icy blue-green gray and become flushed more so with lilac-rose when cold encroaches. 'Pacific Blue Ice' will make a beautiful contrasting Hens and Chicks with other alpines, cacti and succulents or will be lovely all on its own. Put it in a pot, a rock garden, among boulders, atop a wall as edging... there are so many uses. Full sun in average to sandy, impoverished soil. Added dolomitic limestone will be beneficial. Established potted Hens and Chicks from offset.
