This week we will be looking at Pax and Hybridizer Martin Haberer. Love the form on this one. I know nothing about Martin Haberer so I'm looking forward to an interesting week.

Hi Julia,
Martin Haberer is one of the great german semps-breeders and a very good semps-friend of mine :-)
we made a breeder-portrait on our homepage:
http://www.sempervivum-liste.de/node/15

at the end of this portrait are some photos of his garden and at the bottom there is a link "Züchter-Sorten" (breeders varieties) - when you click on it you can find all the cultivars breeded by him;

he is nearly 79 years old and still travels all over the world to see foreign countrysides and rare plants; and he knows them all by botanical names; his slideshows with comments are highlights on our annual sempervivum-meetings; this year he's been in Marokko;

he is a real good fellow and likes to help newbies to start their collections with offsets from his big collection; I've got offsets of about 400 varieties from him in the first years of collecting;

Pax is a very nice variety and I really like it;

Peter

no, sorry; a lot of cultivars from Martin Haberer are seedling by chance (he often used the Skrocky method Whistling );

What a bummer Cliff. I haven't had this one, but it seems to do very well in the Pacific Northwest.

I just realized yesterday that I do have Pax. Hurray!
It was given to me during our gathering for the Sempervivum Clinic. Which of you brought it to me? There were a number of bags with new semps for me, but no name of the person giving it.

I don't know if all of them came from me Lynn, I gave you 5 different cultivars, and yes in brown bags Thumbs up Not even close to being a "fair trade" when you gave me soooooo many semps!! Thumbs up Thumbs up I watered today at my troughs and the semps are doing great! Especially the NOID that you gave me Lynn (formerly known as Silverene!) I love the color (I know I can hear you from here Bev!) Hilarious! Hilarious! I really love that I found this passion for these plants and that there are people to share the passion with! Rolling on the floor laughing Group hug
