Very pretty semp Cinta. We don't know who the hybridizer is, but it is widely sold in the U.S & Europe.

Thanks Lynn. Is there a preferred name? (I'm thinking probably not). This is one of the semps that I bought several of to share at the clinic last year. They were labeled as Desert Bloom and were from Garland Nursery but propagated by the Little Prince (frog label).

Here is the thread where we researched this semp. Seems all of those names are referring to the same plant. We have it in the database under 'Desert Bloom', with all the other names it is sold as.

Oh, thanks Lynn! I think I'll just call it Desert Bloom then, since it was labeled as such. I'll keep in mind it also has other names.

Hee hee, all of these starts go to my pal out in the country towards Lebanon. He has acreage so I do the starts and he grows them out. If I want anything back I have to drive out there...

As for my own garden here, it will be three tomato plants and a few bush beans...

Thank you for adding the photo dirt. I don't think we have sorted this one out yet.
Here is another thread where we discussed this one. The thread "Desert Bloom semp." in Sempervivum forum
