What do the flowers of your semps look like?

Janice, I'm adding a photo to your post, so it will be easy to see in the list of threads. : )

Thanks, Lynn, that is a pretty one.

It depends on the semp. Some are more pink than others.
here's some from S. funckii that are pretty typical:

Appollonia is different - both the shape and color. Nice! Is pittonii white, or more of a yellow color?

I wish I would have taken another photo of Appollonia when all the blooms opened. It was spectacular.

Pittonii was white with the middle section of each leaf a pale yellow/green. It was very pretty. I found it interesting to see the heavy cilia lining the edges of the petals.

I really need to learn how to use the new macro lens my son gave me this month. I can't wait to see better detail on the semp blooms. Same with the seeds. I want to see close ups of the seeds. Hurray!

Thank you Chris.
Have you ever seen a sempervivum seed up close? I would love to see that.
I have some I harvested this fall, I put them in a jar. Maybe when I get back home I will hunt the jar up and see if I can distinguish the seeds from the chaff and take a photo of them.

I can't post any more photos until I get back home.

Won't be long before we will be sending semps to new homes.
We should all make an effort to photograph all our semp blooms. I think it would be such a great feature of the Sempervivum entries in ATP plant database. Hurray!

Seeds also. Anyone have photos of seeds?

Oops! Did Lynn mistake you for me! I need a new camera so that I can take good close ups of semps. Any recommendations anyone? Right now I am using a simple point and shoot without a macro lense or tripod.

How much do you want to spend on a Camera? I love my Canon Rebel Xti which is a digital SLR.

I've got my trade list up on Cubits, along with a bunch of other people. I hope more people put up their trade lists.

Yes, Lynn, I posted a photo of semp seeds to the database awhile ago.

They are of mixed seeds, posted under the general Semp listing.

Actually I sowed those and have little noid babies. I will take some pics.

First try a tripod Sandi. I can't believe how much difference it makes. Twit finally convinced me to do that.
I love my Nikon D40. Both Canon and Nikon cameras are wonderful.

Janice I went and found the seed photo. Hurray! Great photo. Boy they are really tiny. Now I will know what to look for in all that debris in the jar.

You should start a thread for Sempervivum seedlings. Thumbs up

Lynn, don't think I can take credit for the tripod idea. do think I mentioned the macro function that steadies shots - always use it with my camera. Also have macro functions for closeups, good thing to make sure your camera has before buying.
