Sempervivum Companion Plants

By Emma
March 13, 2013

When ATP forum moderator Lynn Smith (valleylynn) asked me to write this article, she commented in her typically enthusiastic way that a visit to our nursery had transformed her thinking about gardening with Sempervivums. At Wild Ginger Farm, we specialize in alpine and rock garden plants and feature Sempervivums in our naturalistic display gardens. Written by Emma Elliot of Wild Ginger Farms.

Loved all the pics of combo plantings. Thank you for the information. Smiling It's been needed. Will surely take to mind the suggestions for companion planting for sempervivums.

When I found out how easy it was to find plants that would play well with the sempervivum, I never looked back. I add new varieties each year. It adds a whole new element to the sempervivum beds.
