Wonderful presentation Bev on how to use our great ATP database to find just the right sempervivum for your needs. Size, seasonal color, and different growing conditions contributing to the different seasonal color changes.
This is a very helpful article in understanding the color attributes of different semps.

Thank You! Lynn, and glad you thought it might be useful/helpful. It was my goal.
Also, as I mentioned on other thread, there was a link omitted that listed other factors affecting Sempervivum color. I thought it was a good list:
