Hi Margo, I was out of town when you first posted this, I looked at it on my phone but it isn't easy using my phone to reply (I'm not that good at typing on it) Glad you re-posted in the regular forum so people could answer you! In case you aren't aware the Pacific series were hybridized by Gary G ossett, and I too love his semps! Fortunately for me I live in Seattle and he was in Portland area when he hybridized them, both places have similar climates!
I think that what happens most often with plants that are in the degree of cold you're having, is that they get dried out and the snow keeps that from happening as well. My experience is that the larger ones and smoother ones have a bigger problem with any kind of negative environment - the smaller fuzzy ones seems to do so much better, and maybe that would be something to consider when deciding within the Pacific Series. Pacific Red Tide does great for me, it is medium sized and grows pretty fast! If you don't have that one, it might be one to get!
I'm pretty sure that the Pacific series of semps were first sold through SMG succulents, for several years there has been a different owner, but if you haven't gone to their website it is really worth checking out!
Don is the owner and he is really nice! http://www.smgsucculents.com/
Glad you joined in the conversation!
