It just goes to show how different climates affect our semps and jovi's - my greenstone is bright red and my wolcott's variety is yellow!

It is interesting, Evie! Thumbs up

I have seen very very different colorations than in some other parts of the US, too.

Seems like the hot sun here affects them.

Are any of yours yellow now, Evie?

Yes my wolcott's variety (in my profike pic) is still yellowish and Rusty is a sort of golden/mustardy colour.

My gold heufelliis, 'Gold Bug' and 'Xanthoheuf" have gone green but several of the S. cantabricum forms have gone yellow-ish or maybe I should say pale green, like S. calcareum 'Limelight'.

Several of the seedling heufelliis that are descended from 'Correvon's Form' are showing yellow color and others are very grass green, like the way that 'Xanthoheuf' goes in summer, so I'm anticipating some nice golds and yellows in these groups. Bill Nixon had said that 'Correvon's Form' (we knew it as 'Palaisii' in those days) often threw gold seedlings. These seedlings are the F3 from that plant but it is interesting that the tendency to throw golds has passed down to its non-yellow descendants. I'm hoping that these will take after their parents and be better growers than 'Xanthoheuf' (admittedly the bar is rather low!!).

My Wolcott's Variety is pink. It's pretty much always pink.

My most yellow jovi is Lemon Sky, but it's still mostly green. Gold Bug doesn't have any yellow, but it is lighter than most of the others. Greenstone is just green.

Tederheid and Bernstein are my most yellow semps.

You get such great color Greg, I am jealous. But not enough to move to Seattle Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

My Michael's Gold is still green. Maybe after we get some cooler weather it will turn golden. I hope so.

Seattle's not a bad place Marilyn! But it is expensive to move here! (OR on the other hand??) Are yours in full sun? Mine looks bigger than yours too,so it could be that yours is still a young 'un?
Shrug!

I got it in May, so yes it is a young'un. I have visited Seattle several time when my bro and family lived out there, there were few times of Sun when I visited, so I am afraid I would go stir crazy. We get a lot of sun here.
