So, I just added about 8 more semps to my want list seeing all these beauties!
I'm not typically keen on aberrant semp forms, but I have to say Semp 'Crazy' has enough consistent regularity to those crazy shape wavy leaves, to reign in asymmetry and present a cool green picture of fun. I'm also working on adding some good all-greens, so this goes on my list.
Semp calcareum 'Extra' looks fantastic, and I'm happy that my plant came back from the brink of death over winter and finally looking like it wants to grow.
Julia and Bev ----> watermarks, I love them, they add such dimension to the plants. I was pleased to discover only today, that Semp 'Vlado', here in the height of summer and all green currently, has beautiful watermarks in the center, here's a photo from today. I de-chicked this very large rosette for increase (my only "giant" semp currently), and last years chicks grew large enough that they're sending out their own chicks now.
Oh my goodness, 'Olivia (II)', Pacific Rosewood, and Pacific Patches are must haves, but 'Tiefgang'...WOW, incredible dark color and a Fibonacci type too, what's not to love.
Now a few from today:
Top and oblique view of two new semps I got this spring, I think they compliment each other, 'Elvis' on the left (it has Fib leaf spiralling) and 'Karin' on the right, I love it's soft colors and fine fuzziness.
Four semp varieties in this photo, bottom row left to right is heuffelii 'Inferno' on left, and 'Intensity' on right. To cool it down, two all greens in top row, 'Wax Lyrical' on the left and 'Froschkonig' on the right.
Closer view of a few varieties that I made into a NGA "plant combination" photo:
'Elvis' again on top left, 'Zundflamme' in two pots top right, rich pink 'Magnificum' bottom left, and hot orange 'Casablanca' in two pots bottom right.
Ever so pink 'Virgil Ford', a new arrival just a few days ago.
And last, Semp x nixonii 'Jowan' on the left, and Kevin's awesome 'Pink Lotus' on the right.
