As a comment about Hen and chicks (Sempervivum 'Pinkerine'), valleylynn wrote:

I received this information from Matts Jopson, Director of Sales & Marketing.
Matts Jopson said:This is actually a strange variant of ‘Silverine’ that we found mislabeled amongst our old stock of Sempervivums. We couldn’t figure out what it actually is called, so we just decided to name it ‘Pinkerine’ to contrast its color with the original ‘Silverine’.

If you have any other ideas about what it could be, I’d love to hear them, because we do strive for accuracy in our listings.

It is unkown whether it is a seedling amongst the group of 'Silverine', or an actual variant of 'Silverine'.
In either case we cannot show the breeder as Sandy MacPherson, but it sure is a beauty.

I suppose we'll see what comes of this semp. I'll keep you posted.
Right now they're still in the afternoon shade area, doing very well.

I did notice one of the chicks was a bit more green than the others.
Can't wait to see what they do!

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort!

I look forward to seeing it in all seasons, to have a record of any changes in color. Thank you so much Terri for keeping us updated. Thumbs up
