So many creative names out there, what is stopping a back yard breeder from raising seedlings, naming them and putting on the market? So how does one get to have a Sempervivum name that is recognized by collectors or on these lists?

If they are not rating them with an educated eye, we will have so many inferior named semps out there. Not everyone has a teacher like we have.

Just wondering?

Great compilation of lists!

I've wondered this too. It's kind of scary if someone with my lack of knowledge/experience could just start naming seedlings and selling them to an unscrupulous retailer.

I didn't compile the lists they are on this site to the right under reference. I use them all the time very helpful. But if they are not on these collectors lists or Google then is it a legitimate cultivar or not?
There are over 4000 and counting. How do we know there are that many? Are they good, bad or ugly? Hilarious! Just wondering?

Hehe thanks. I don't like to bother them. Sticking tongue out

I've also stumbled across another situation - people naming their seedlings and selling direct (like through E-Bay).
Eek!

There is a good reason to not buy from ebay (if you care about correctly named plants). Most of the major commonly grown (popular) garden plants have an "official" registry where names are recorded along with very detailed (usually) descriptions. I don't think there is a registry for sempervivums, just "lists"?

very interesting thread Julia Thumbs up

it's an old problem that there are a lot of lists but nothing official;
that's the cause why we've built our homepage www.sempervivum-liste.de on the background of a database I had built out of all that available lists around in the net;

I've taken every single item and compared them.....and the result has gone online;

then we tried to get photos for each entry; our users tried to buy all the available cultivars - we traveled to the big collections to make photos - we call breeders to get original photos from them......

but new breeders appear (for example Sue Thomas or Dagmar Petrlikova) and we have to expand our list permanently; we always try to get informations about the breeder, the year of release and the parents; but sometimes a nice plant with a new name appears and we find nothing about it;

it has to be something unique to get into our list without information - or we record it if a big seller like Erwin Geiger or Volkmar Schara add it to their offer....

it's a hard and permanent work and we look around all over the world; I think our list is one of the most actual and complete - but we won't record every common Semps only because it has a name;

So now, when we go out shopping at nurseries we need to carry one of those modern gadgets so we can look up names and compare photos online before buying. Green Grin!
I have no desire to own a Smart Phone, so what other gadget would work?

Tablets, although they can perhaps be a bit unwieldy. But they would be better for larger semp pics. Hilarious! Whistling

Nope, I am technology-minded, but quite against many of the current technological devices that remove human interaction. Hilarious!

When the Sempervivum Society was still active they were the official registration authority for the genus. Since they have folded there is no official authority. Peter Mitchell got all my records for the ones that were released in the first part of my "career" so all that information was recorded and he published a preliminary list of names to that point, probably ~800.

I have tried to correct a few entries on the Slovakian list without much luck. For some reason Shirley Rempel was given credit for 'Jungle Fires' but it;s definitely mine.

Peter's web site is certainly the most up-to-date and researched and I thank him for trying to keep things in order. It is no easy business in a genus known for misnamed plants! When Toby and I decide on the next group of names I will send Peter more photos and descriptions for his site.

What we really need is a society with a designated registrar. Maybe after the iris convention is over next spring I can try to organize a Sempervivum Society again. I think there is certainly interest out there but with the potential of 800 people coming to my yard ALL THINGS have to wait until after that!
