Boy are things starting to pop at the Perennial Obsessions Nursery. I had a great time visiting with Dave, Cinda and Kevin, looking at all the new varieties that Cinda will eventually have available, some of which have made the journey from Germany and England. I am really excited to see the when the become available.
Meanwhile she has a number of old varieties that have not been around for a long time. They came from a long time collector/nurseryman. He had quite an extensive collection. Some very interesting things to be found here.
Maybe @perennialobsessions can tell us more about this person and what it is that he did in sempervivum?

Meanwhile I am sorry to say I only took a very few photos, I was way to busy buying new semps to replace ones that I lost this winter. *Blush*

Here is Don's heuffelii seedlings that are just starting to germinate. He also has some semp seedlings, but I forgot to get a photo of them. *Blush*

Many semps are ready for market. And some came home to live with me. Hurray!

My new babies, including a new sedum and 3 new saxifraga. And replacements for the S. 'Pink Pearl' I lost this winter. Lovey dubby

They have a sale coming up the weekend of our Clinic, but Dave will be doing it so Cynda can come play with us. What a great husband. Sad though, he will be missed.

It's always fun to have a visit from a couple of major semperholics! I will be taking all my babies/projects to Canby again this year. We're also at the Salem Saturday market from now until the end of June, and the McMinnville Thursday market, starting at the end of May. Come see us!!!

Can you tell us something a PH? I know you have told me about him, but as I do many times, it must have gone in one ear and out the other. *Blush*

Cynda ~ will you pretty please gives us a heads up about when the new ones from the EU will be available? Will you have them on your website first, or start selling them at the plant fairs?

Yes that was SUCH a fun day!

Can't believe we yacked about semps for that long too. I checked my watch and was SHOCKED to see we had been there for 4+ hours!

So nice to be here in Oregon where sempaholics are so plentiful!

I think she could have easily handled the situation with only 4 of us. She is a pro kitten herder.
