|That middle photo (taken in September if I read right) is truly striking.|

|I don't have this one, but I gave it some major eye-balling while making up my wish list. I suspect it will now appear on a few lists, including my own.|
It reminds me a bit of 'Romiley' which will be popular and in short supply. Oddly enough I selected 'Allas' which looks alot like 'Eyjafjalla'. But not as good I think maybe I'll swap them.

True enough. I see three people with that one on their list, including me.

|That is a good thing Tim. That way if some one looses their plant, it will still be here in the U.S.|

|A very nice cultivar and very common in Germany|
August 30. 2014:
The name is inspired by the volcano named 'Eyjafjallajökull' in Iceland in the north of Europe, which erupted in March 2010. The air traffic had to be stopped in northern and central Europe, because of the volcanic ash.

|It is such a striking semp with it's unusual coloring pattern. Thank you for sharing the information. |
I love that this thread is attached to the entry in the database, so the history of the amazing sempervivum will be seen by many.

And soon, hopefully, to be very common in the Pacific Northwest.
