This cultivar can be found in the ATP Plant Database at:
Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Zulu') .

Zulu has some very interesting color phases throughout the year. Check out the database entry to see them.
A great introduction in 1977 by Martin Haberer. It has a wonderful form and high offset count. And an added bonus in that the blooms are a lovely cream color with dark centers. It also produces large amounts of golden pollen.

Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more!



Also, please consider adding a "Local Report" to the ATP Plant Database! Thank you!

Interesting... Just earlier today I put Zulu on my want list and now here it is, Semp of the Day! I was indeed attracted to the color changes and I think it would make a nice addition to my little collection.
