I have two semps that I may have sent out to some of you, that are the wrong ID.
If I sent you either of these please change them to NOID, as they are incorrect.

Sempervivum braunii. As you can see it bloomed and is definitely not a sempervivum, but a Jovibarba. Don't know which one. Sad

S. 'Glowing Embers' This plant also is not correct. Please change it to NOID if I sent you this one.
Incorrect plant

Here is what Glowing Embers should look like. Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Glowing Embers')
Keep in mind that both of the photos are young offsets.

I am so sorry about the mistake and will try to be more careful about researching new plants as they come into my semp beds. It is a very easy thing to happen, plants can come mis-labeled, which leads to great confusion.
I hope any of you that received these two plants from me will make the correction and not continue the confusion. *Blush*
