Sempervivum 'Flamingo'

Hens and Chicks

Plant Type:

SUN PERENNIALS

Sempervivum 'Flamingo' What a beauty! All leaves on this Hens and Chicks are barely green with a a bare overlay of red for a frosted look. Deep burgundy red solidly predominates all leaf edges increasing in intensity towards the tips with all tips a saturated deep burgundy red. The edging contrasts with and sets off the frosted interiors and doubles in underscoring and demarcating the perfect architectural structure. Some of the red bleeds down into the main central vein. Yummy! For best colors plant in full sun, impoverished to average soil. Established potted semps propagated from hens.
