Hi travart. Welcome! to the Sempervivum Forum.

Wow that is really an unusual one. Let me call on some of the experts.

They may be able to help us with this one. Most we can't give an ID, but when they are really unusual sometimes we can. Lets see what they say. Thumbs up

I assume the question is about the center plant. I am unfamiliar with that one and reluctant to even say it is a Sempervivum. The smaller plants encircling it are obviously not offsets of the central plant. But it is definitely interesting.

It reminds me of another succulent I have.

Hi travart;

sorry - never seen something like yours;

does it produce offsets with the same look? maybe it's only a single mutation of a normal sempervivuvm-plant...

Does it have any offsets attached to it?

The plant belongs to my friend in north carolina, she asked me to help try to identify it because I have such an extensive collection of sempervivums. She is near raleigh I believe and it came from a local nursery there and has not produced offsets as of right now.

Would you let her know that we would love to watch it's progress? I am very curious to see the changes it might go through.

travart83 wow that is a cool plant! The offset in the lower left part of the pot has identical coloration, so it could be one from this hen Shrug!
Thanks for sharing the photo! I tip my hat to you.

No wonder it looked so familiar.
It wasn't long ago I was looking at it in the beds. *Blush*
I'll go out tomorrow and take a new photo for comparison. Thumbs up

Good work Bev. Group hug

Actually my 'Ohioan' looks more like the plant in question. it has that odd curvature to the leaf that is so distinctive. The pictures of 'Hullabaloo' don't look quite the same to me. 'Ann-Christy' has this leaf form some times but the plant looks to be a bit smaller too.

I made crosses of 'Ohioan' to some red semps this year to see if I couldn't get more red into the leaves. It stays more green than colored for me.

Sorry for the double post. I was out looking and 'Ann Christy' was one with that unique form. For some reason it said i hadn't posted the first one!
