Okay, some of my seedlings from last year are finally getting big enough to see what they are doing this spring.
One very red seedling and one very fuzzy green and red/burgundy?

This is the one that as a very tiny seedling had the funky yellow/peach colors. Left photo 5/2014, right photo 2/2013

I love the form of this little one, and the way the offsets surround the rosette.
Thumb of 2014-05-22/valleylynn/cda5a4

Here are a few heuffelii. The second photo surprised me, it is already forming new rosettes.

And here is a really odd colored semp. Lots of smokey grey color to it, but the photo doesn't pick up the color.
I find the offsets adorable, but don't care that much for the form of this one. A little to leggy looking. Wonder if it will stay this way?

Love them, such good colors. The wreath affect is a favorite of mine too, wish all the semps did that. When I see the long stolen I can see Kevin waving his arms around at the clinic. Hilarious!
Lynn, do you know any of the parents in your babies?

I don't know any of the parents on these. They were the result of leaving seed heads over winter. Sad
They were coming up everywhere. I will never make that mistake again. Most I just tossed. No rhyme or reason on which got tossed and which were put into a tray. They all just looked like minute green things. I didn't even make a note on what bed and area of the bed they were coming up.

This year is the year of the sedum seedlings. Again, they are coming up everywhere. Rolling my eyes.

I had to go back and look for the photo bombing 'roller'. It is cute, but nothing that appears to be different. Think I will move it out to the bed under the front room window. The little roller looks to be talking to the fuzzy semp offset closest to it. Whistling

I find the little fuzzy red one in the first photo to be very cute, and tiny, and very bright red. It will be interesting to see how it progresses.

J. C. what a cute description of that little semp.

Lynn,

How cool! I'm so glad that you got some pretty ones and not just "Old Warty" types!

Those peachy ones tend to be unstable, going more towards red or purple as they mature. The heuffs tend to be all nice plants and it's hard to sort through them to find the really nicest ones.

I should know more about these seedling come next spring.
Thank you Kevin for the information. That peachy on did go red, not sure what to expect from here? It has an odd coloring right now.

The two green heuffelii are totally different in form right now. The four heuffelii photo is really velvety in texture.

Greg, I just looked at Averil in our database. The photo by Beatrix Bodmeier, the one Peter entered in our database, has the same type of coloring. But Averil has a much nicer form and does not have the long/leggy stolons.

We will just have to watch them to see if they will be container project semps. Green Grin!

And here is the peach one this month (October 2014). The offsets are taking on a very different color from the parent seedling. The parent rosette bloomed so I'm saving the seed just to see what comes out of it. Still keeping some of the yellow/peachy tones to the outer leaves, but sure showing color in the center, I think more purple that red? What do you all think?
I am really loving this smaller semp (#1-2012), about 3 inches across the mature rosette. All the offset grew up close and completely around the main rosette.

Yeah, the peachy one is quite nice. These are colors we don't have very much and could use more.

Pat Drown many years ago had a GLOWING pink with purple tips and she named it "Wine and Roses" right away as it was so beautiful. Unfortunately it did not survive a brutal winter. It was a 'Missouri Rose' kid and I grew a large batch from it but nothing close. I did get 'Prairie Sunset' out of it, which is like a more intense 'Missouri Rose'. Anyway, even 40 years later I've never seen anything like "Wine and Roses". It hasn't stopped me from trying, however!

You see my problem with the heuffs as so many are pretty. When i give my hybridizing lectures I often say "It's difficult to make an ugly daffodil" (although I have!) and the same could be said for the heuffs. All are nice garden plants. Bill Nixon eventually gave up growing semp seed but kept up with heuffs.

Wow, Lynn, I just found this thread! Your seedlings are amazing. I put mine up on the usual Semp/Jova chat & photo thread. If I'd been paying attention, maybe they should have gone here? Can you move things that way? I have one -- my "Coral Blaze" that is a bit like your first seedling up there. I'd like to see their photos next to each other! Congratulations! I tip my hat to you. MR

They look quite different next to each other : yours has got some fuzz to it, mine is more of a coral... Although I just blew my coral one up to print it at 600 dpi and lo and behold, it has quite a bit of fuzz. So I think next year it may well look quite different!

Edit: I wanted to see how this other one looked in the same lineup... Like yours, it also has some fuzz...

All beautiful! Lovey dubby

Very nice MR. I find it interesting that mine has kept the peach/yellow coloring on the lower leaves and is now showing for the first time the almost purple color in the centers. I really look forward to seeing what it does next spring.
Here is a thread where we are all sharing out seedlings. The thread "Seed Sempervivum" in Sempervivum and Jovibarba forum

I cleanup up all the offsets from seedling #1 2012 and planted them today. Now they are ready for next spring. Keeping my fingers crossed. It seems the color is intensifying with arrival of rain and cool temps. Hard to tell in this photo though.
Thumb of 2014-10-15/valleylynn/112ce3

I am looking forward to seeing how this one does next year. I should have leaned the dead leaves off the plant before taking the photo. *Blush*
Thumb of 2014-10-15/valleylynn/44f0e9

Here are a few more heuffelii.
Thumb of 2014-10-15/valleylynn/1959bd Thumb of 2014-10-15/valleylynn/e0afc3

This one is the same age as the above heuffs, but has been growing like crazy, and is quite large now.
Thumb of 2014-10-15/valleylynn/13e71e

This one is growing quite flat.
