I was wondering if this is actually the same plant



Pastel

and

'Nouveau Pastel'

Both by same hybridizer one in 1956 Nouveau -- one in 76 Pastel

Just wondering. Shrug!

They are not the same...Marilyn I noticed that hybridizers often have a theme when naming their plants - for example Clint is going to use "solid gold" as his naming theme Thumbs up Rolling on the floor laughing

I think I have just the one but some of my noids look kinda like that so have been wondering.

If you look at the database pictures you will see they seem to be quite a range of coloration and kinda look alike

depending on which photo you look at. The Nouveau came with a label from SMG so am pretty sure it is what it is Hilarious! Hilarious!

I was updating my plant lists and noticed I had the Nouveau and had a want for the Pastel. There in I became confused


Edited to add a bit of explanation

They are different plants, but are related.

Clint, If you crossed those two varieties, would you name it Sempervivum 'Kung Pou Chicken'?
