I routinely rogue out and throw away bloom stalks because my semps are too close together to EVER have a clue what parentages were involved in a chance seedling. This is the first time my S. 'Sprite' has bloomed and I was blown away by to color: ice white, hint of green with a pink center. I actually brought it in and put it in a vase - it's beautiful.

Kate that is a most wonderful white bloom, and such a wonder photo of it.
Down side is that Sprite should have a pink bloom. Can you show us a photo of the rosettes?
That white bloom is making me drool. Just love it.

Well, that's disappointing - I spend a lot of time trying to be sure that I have the right names of all my semps. This is one I got as a trade from someone here - although I cannot remember who it was. I'll post a picture of the rosettes tomorrow.

It truly is a beautiful photo of and very pretty sempervivum bloom. The bloom is very distinctive. We may be able to figure out which semp it is.
Can you show us a photo of the rosettes Kate?

Finally - got some pix - sorry for the delay. Any and all leads greatly appreciated. The photos have NOT been tweaked for color; straight out of the camera.

What an unusual color. Pretty. Must go look it up.
Thanks for sharing. Hurray!

That should go to the database to make a nice comparison of different regions/time frames

I think that beauty would be a good candidate for breeding, even if the name is unknown.
