This little peachy semp is from a batch silverine x itself seedlings that were sown last year. I'm surprised that I got quite a few seedlings that have some colour (mostly green with dusky pink towards the middle of the rosette) as I wasn't expecting anything other than green. This one is my favourite though!

This odd looking three leaf per tier is the runt of the litter lol

Kate,

Several of my 'Silverine' open pollinated seedlings had that shade, including the one I named 'Silver Song', which was probably a self pollination. SAs it matured it became a solid silver. I self pollinated some 'Silver Song' last season but only got a handful of seedlings. In this case I wqas trying to get an even broader-leaved version. That waterlily form is so nice I wouldn't mind a whole color range with that form.
