|I greatly appreciate your comments. Since you have the original semp, can you write a brief description of 'Casa' at different times of the growing season? Do all of the photos in our data base appear to not be the correct Casa? I do know for a fact that those of us that do have Casa in our collections, have received the semp from different sources.|
Thank you so much, Peter. I feel it is very important to have "things correct".

|I have to watch it around the year - not done before; it's difficult to keep 1.500 cultivars in focus over the year ;-)|
but I can try to translate the short-discription of Martin himself:
Ros. 7 cm (about 2,8''), lightbluegreen, inside red, broad leaves
on the photos I can see some small and long leaves....some red at the outside...some yellow....
I can't imagine one of it turns to the right appearence :-(

|Peter, on your site it shows it in June, July and Aug. http://sempervivum-liste.de/Se...|
Horst's site obviously shows it at least 2 other months. http://translate.google.com/tr...
Mine, tabby and Sandi's are definitely not the correct plant. I actually don't have this one in my collection, the photos are from PO. But there's looks even different from the the other three.

|My Casa is from SMG. I don't remember exactly where Tabby obtained hers but I can ask. I think it may have been from Simply Succulents|

|the most photos show the wrong plant; that's not Casa - that's Casablanca (very similar to Adamina);|
this confusion happens long ago...

|I will see if I can find Casablanca here in the US to compare. Thanks Peter!|

|I guess they are all under the wrong name Casa around; |

|Sandi, both yours and Tabby's are from SMG. |
On my way to delete the incorrect photos. Sorry it took so long for me to respond to this. I've have been gone since yesterday afternoon and just got back.

|@picklepuff @valleylynn @banker07 Hi all, I have this plant called 'Casa' which I bought from SMG, did we decide it is 'Casablanca' yet? Or is it simply a NOID?? (I'm hoping its 'Casablanca' because what a pretty name for such a pretty plant!!)|
Cheers and thanks

the wrong Casa is very similar to the right Casablanca - but it's not sure... :-(
we know that a lot of NOIDs are similar to known cultivars; but there is a risk that it's not the same genome;

|Let us keep watching. Please enter your photos in this thread. It will help if we can see them in all the seasons.|

|I will! I meant to take my camera with me today and forgot so I'll bring it tomorrow! There are some lovely semps in my tubs! |
Cresta and Round Midnight are gorgeous!

|Can't wait to see them Greg. Excitement is growing, I can feel spring just around the corner.|
