Today's plant of the day for Sempervivum is Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Blue Balou').

This plant can be found in our Plant Database at:
Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Blue Balou') .
Another recent introduction from Europe. 'Blue Balou' has lovely blue tones for most of the year.
Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more!



Also, please consider adding a Plant Performance Report to the database! Thank you!

How does this plant compare to Blue Boy. It seems to be about the same color but I do not see the number of babies here that Blue boy produces. (perhaps they went into the Semp jerky ???)

It is bluer than Blue Boy, and a different shade of blue. It also carries the blue for many months. Also a larger semp than Blue Boy.

A photo taken this month. Even in October it is showing quite a bit of blue coloring.
