A thread for just those fuzzy type semps you have. Not the webbed ones.
Here are a few photos that I took early this morning.

Warning: All Fuzzy Semps Ahead are NOIDS... ENJOY!

(sorry about the inconsistency of photo sizes) and I'm wondering whether my semps really aren't fuzzy enough like Lynn's. Maybe mine are more downy?

She has a few sisters & brothers, but not very many. And she has a very odd way of growing.

Yeah!!!! Wonderful Greg. Hurray!
More fuzzy semps. I think this is the right place for Koko Flanel. It never really gets webbing. Seems like the cilia is just so long that it tangles when the leaves close up at certain times of the year. Very lite webs. Wonder what the cross is?

Can I ask a question of you all fuzzy semp owners: Have you found these fuzzy semps to thrive as well as their non-fuzzy neighbors or have you found the fuzzy ones to have more difficulty?
I am in the process of picking out certain areas within one semp bed to plant those that can sustain more sun exposure, those that can be situated near hot rocks and tile, those that need to be elevated higher, etc.

Bev, I can honestly say that all my semps are grown under the same conditions, Hot and dry in the summer (full sun) and wet and cold in the winter/spring. The only ones I have had problems with were in old beds that became compacted and the beds were also to shallow for our high winter/spring water table. Once that was remedied I have not had any problems. Even with Lilac Time, which I was going to get rid of because she rotted ever winter/spring. Not anymore. Big Grin

Thanks for your feedback, Lynn.
I find that some of the semp arachs were not thriving as well in the semp bed, so I pulled them out and put into a separate flat. Then I slowly reintroduced a variety at a time but put them behind a rock or in an area where the sun hits last during the day. This all helped and I am now contemplating being more selective about which fuzzy or ciliated or hairy (sorry about the old names to describe) I put in the bed so that I don't buy the ones that don't thrive that well in the bed.

I only have a year or so with semps but it seems to me that the webbed ones like more full sun, and less water. If that helps you??
I tip my hat to you.
