Here is another mystery for all to help solve.
@banker07, we need your expertise on this one. I do find a Jovibarba 'Red Glory' by Andre Smits, but no reference for a Sempervivum 'Red Glory'.
@picklepuff and @Cahac, can you help with this mystery.

Lynn I don't know about a Sempervivum 'Red Glory' - it can't be a cultivar from André Smits like the information in your database mentions;

That's what I thought, because Andre Smits 'Red Glory' is a heuffelii.

Cliff and Sandi, can you tell us where you got yours from? Maybe we can track down information on it.

I purchased my Red Glory from Norrh Hills about 5 years ago. I lost it this past winter.

Thank you Sandy. I changed the information in the database, removing Andre Smits as the hybridizer.

I got mine in a swap with a lady in Ohio,last year. she could have gotten it from North Hills. N.H. still has it listed for sale.
and it looks like mine.There is a Lennicks Glory color is close but that 1 has a fuzzy velvet look and mine is shiny and smooth
and here is a person from California selling this 1 in 2009. https://www.etsy.com/listing/31955748/sempervivum-red-glory-...

Hi Cliff. The etsy semp doesn't appear to be the same one that is in our database?

Sandi, can you contact Martha to see if she has a history on this one?

She just may not have time to respond right away. This is probably a really buy time of year for her.
Thank you for checking with her Sandi. Thumbs up
