As a comment about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum sp. from Epinel), banker07 wrote:

here is something wrong....

this plant is no cultivar but collected in nature; but it's unknown to which species it belongs; there is no information about "wulfenii-hybrid" or "Formerly known as Sempervivum tectorum ex p x wulfenii Epinel";

without knowing the species it is correctly named "Sempervivum ssp. from Epinel"

in 2008 the breeder Martin Haberer (Germany) give this plant the name 'Epinella' - but only cultivars have to get a name...plants found in nature have to be named with species and location;

so we have to delete this name and call it "S. sp. from Epinel" and declare it as collected in nature;

country of origin is italy (Epinel) - there it was found in nature;
year of registration must be deleted because it is in collection for years before it;
Origin of name isn't Martin Haberer for that name it has now - that an "organic name"
maybe you add 'Epinella' to the further names and add this information to the field "Origin of name"
