Peter this one has been around for a very long time. And is sold by hundreds of nurseries and wholesale growers. What do you think we should do with this one. It is different from all of my other cobweb types.

I sent an email to FormemostCo, Inc. http://www.foremostco.com/
ForemostCo Plant Producers and Brokers of Offshore Cuttings and Domestic Liner Material.

This does not look good? Crying

So who is deciding the names of all these plants they carry? http://www.foremostco.com/Miscellaneous%20PDF/Succulent%20Im...

I see why it is not good to buy from the big box stores if you are trying to collect legitimate named sempervivum.
