@jungleshadows - is the presence or absence of cilia a valid way to try confirming semp ID? If a semp has it, will they always have it through all stages, seasons, conditions? (Shade, winter, potted etc) Example - Fair Lady. My last photo in the database - should I watch it to see if it develops cilia, or is it just the wrong semp? Looking forward to your book! Hurray!

Patty I wanted to get the answer to your question also so I'm 'watching this thread'
here is the ATP link

And here is what Sempervivum-liste.de shows
http://www.sempervivum-liste.de/Sempervivum/Fair%20Lady

@Springcolor @Webesemps @goldfinch4 @valleylynn
Bev this is the plant you gave me that was labelled as 'Kismet' then Julia gave me 'Fair Lady' and I noticed they are identical - so your Kismet is actually 'Fair Lady'
Chris I think yours is probably wrong, even though I love the name for your semp, to me it fits better - simple and pinkish Thumbs up
Anyway waiting to hear Thanks Kevin I tip my hat to you.

I wonder if lighting can have an affect on how much Cilia a plant can have. Mines in full sun all summer.
Look how different they can look.

Waiting to hear from Kevin, he may have a written description of this one. And maybe even a photo.

Yes, mine is definitely the wrong plant. Got it from North Hills Nursery in 2011. It will now be know as a fair NOID, not a Fair Lady!

Julia, where did you get your 'Fair Lady' from?
It looks like both Chris & Patty have the incorrect plant.
@Patty & @goldfinch4 do I have your permission to delete the incorrect ones?

I mentioned my pic in the question to Kevin so can we leave it till then? I'm sure it's the wrong semp too, but I still wonder about the cilia question Shrug!

Chris's pictures of the same plant where different. One had some cilia and the other which looked like a young plant had no cilia tufting.

Julia I noticed that also!! Odd, because they do look like the real 'Fair lady' in that first pic, but it could just be the photo?? Shrug!

I don't think any of Patty's photo look like the real 'Fair Lady'. She does have one photo that is correct, but that is one she posted that belongs to Fernwood.

Hi, I don't check every post, generally just the photos and chats for '16.

Cilia are a good marker although they area bit broken off/ warn off this time of year.
