Hi Kate!
I don't have an answer at to what's going on with your semps. They do look great though!
I would like to hear Lynn or some of the other experienced members weigh in on this. I'm all ears!
Very curious!

Kate both of those varieties grow in that style of mounding. Pretty cool isn't it. : )
You might get a bloom here and there from the oldest rosettes.

I was wondering more about the elongated oval form of the youngest leaves; making the rosette more oval than round. Does this indicate cresting? I've seen all of them bloom and this seems different.

The center of the rosettes look to be normal, but they are being compressed by the surrounding offsets. It would be interesting if some of them crested, but I don't think that is what is going on.
