Sempervivum 'Goldmarie' is new in the United States. It was brought from Erwin Geiger in Germany, in 2012 by a group that imported approximately 25 to 30 European cultivars. We are very excited about these new semps. So far Goldmarie has maintained wonderful golden tones through most of the seasons.
