This beauty just sat there for almost 1 year. When she took off amazing growth. I can't get down low enough to show all the chicks popping out between the rows of leaves.

I have learned more here than I ever thought was imaginable. I started liking them 25 yrs ago when a neighbor gave me some from her garden. I went online and ordered some and forgot about them. My old house was perfect environment. Not too much sun and not too little sun. They multiplied and I thought I had all I needed.

I moved and they all died so I started to do research and I stumbled upon this sight and realized I KNEW NOTHING......NOTHING AT ALL. Plus in that time these little jewels have been developed into new territory. They are no longer a few Houseleeks of yesteryear.

So a new obsession has begun. I give many thanks to Lynn, Cliff, Bev and so many others that were so sweet to share with me and get me hooked again.

You guys are like little drug dealers on the corner though. Rolling on the floor laughing

Cinta - I SOOOO agree with you there!! These forums can be quite dangerous for the faint of heart and if you have any weakness at all towards these plants - FORGET it, you'll be hooked! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing And I love that now I have such variety in my garden! People walk by all the time and they say 2 things - hmmm interesting what are those plants? And Wow your roses are amazing they smell so good! haha and I can't take any credit for the Roses, they are some old type rose with an amazing scent that won't quit! And all I have to do is prune them way back each February! Easy!! Thumbs up
