Talking about Job's Beard (Sempervivum heuffelii), skopjecollection wrote:

Plant is similar to S.tectorum and S.calcareum in most aspects regarding care: cold outdoor winters, partial sun exposure, likes fresh air, dislikes being wet in summer. Only thing different is the way the rosettes clump (growing directly from the base, instead of making a creeper/adventitious structure), making propagation a bit more difficult. Flowers are also different looking, being similar to other members of what used to be the genus Jovibarba (sempervivum globiferum), in a sense that they are all white and partially closed.

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.

Talking about Hen and chicks (Sempervivum 'Dracula'), valleylynn wrote:

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."
