Talking about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Cebenese'), valleylynn wrote:

This is a lovely arachnoideum type semp when grown well. Observing it over the years I find that it does not do well in full sun during our 2 to 3 months of drought season here in the Pacific Northwest. It tends to burn easily under full sun conditions. If given some protection during the hottest part of the day, say 1/2 day sun or filtered bright light, they will reward you with a lovely colony of web covered semps. Most of the webbing disappears during the wet winter and spring months, but returns with vigor once things warm up and dry out.

Talking about Hen and chicks (Sempervivum 'Dragon's Eye'), valleylynn wrote:

Here is some history on the lovely sempervivum:
JungleShadows said: It's one that I gave the whole clump to Toby (Young's Garden Center). It's number was A2-7 and my notes say "bright red, with better red color than Killer". That's about right. It also seems to be one of the bigger ones from the self pollination, harking more back to Killer's pod parent in form and color.


youngsgarden said:"That's one of Kevin's (Vaughn's) cultivars. It was one from the first year that
he got back into hybridizing semps.
He was using Killer a lot then if I recall correctly.
Because there were so many good varieties in Kevin's first batch of seedlings,
that one was never officially named.
We kept the unnamed seedling because we liked it a lot and it increases well.
One of our children started calling it Dragon's Eye so
when we began selling it in 2016 we just put that name to it.
Hope that helps,
Toby Lander
Young's Garden"
