I have a bed of S. 'Ohio Burgundy", one of which appeared to be sending our offsets on long stems. In actuality, it was sending out multiple bloom stalks (in addition to the main plant's bloom stalk). Is this normal for this particular plant? It's really strange looking.Thumb of 2011-06-24/LabourofLove/24994c

It seems to happen at random Kate. That looks like it might be a mature rosette. I have a few every year that do the same things. Looks like you have many nice replacement plants to keep the line going.
You can try cutting the center bloom stalk off down low and removing the blooming offsets. Some times it will trigger new growth the the stolons. It's worth a try if you don't have replacements.

One of my Red Rubin did the same thing last summer. This one had about 1/2 normal offsets and the rest went to bloom. I had some that all went to bloom like your semp is doing.

I have two 'Oh My' semps that did the same thing this year.

Were they moved this year Chris, or part of an established group?

For me it seems that is the ones that are doing this. New plants that have been through the trauma of moving. I think they are already mature plants to begin with, but I could be wrong on this last point.

I was thinking they were probably already mature too. Sad

I just went out and looked at mine. It is the mature rosettes that are doing this. And not just the ones that I moved this spring.

I should have lots of seed this year. Whistling

Most of the mature rosette is dried up. It would really be pretty if it had stayed full and plump. Rolling my eyes.

Here's another unusual growth pattern. The S. 'Atroviolaceum' has popped a tall stem (like a bloom stalk) but with a normal rosette at the top (no flower stalk). Deeply weird.

It will be very interesting to see how it develops. Thank you for taking the time to document it for us Kate.

Hilarious! Not really Chris. Can't afford to rush them, that mean Mr. Arthur is trying his best to keep me off my knees and seems that each Birthday he gets bolder.
