You know I made that cross for 'Stuffed Olive'; just to piss off Ed Scrocki! When he named 'Olivette' I asked "where's the pimento?" and made the cross with Malbyi #2, which was one of the better reds in the 70's. Anyway, he did enjoy my little jab and loved 'Stuffed Olive' too. 'Olivette' is a problem grower for me here in Oregon but 'Stuffed Olive' is easy.

Zaubergarten said:This new breeding is growing and reproduces well. The inspiration for the name came from Erwin Geiger. He immediately said that such a Semps must be called 'Dracula'.

Talking about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Jungle Shadows'), valleylynn wrote:

A quote from Kevin Vaughn:
"The parentage of 'Jungle Shadows' is officially unknown, but I found it near the clump of 'Silvertone' and I had made the cross with 'Atroviolaceum' that year. That's probably the cross."

Talking about Common Houseleek (Sempervivum tectorum 'Moyin'), schrecka wrote:

This cultivar originally came to us (MCG) from a private collection. The collectors' names were Jim and Irene Russ of Igo, CA. They ran a small nursery which they sold in 1995. That collection made up the bulk of our original collection: https://mountaincrestgardens.c...
