Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Forest Frost'

Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Forest Frost'
cobweb hens-and-chicks
Common name cobweb hens-and-chicks
Family crassulaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-9)
Flowers pink (early summer)
Size 4"
Light sun
Cultural notes well drained soil

Silver-hairy variety of hens-and-chicks, similar in most respects to the not-so-hairy ones. Several rosettes started blooming in late June of their second year in our garden. They are monocarpic (die off after blooming), and I don't see any offsets – so they may be lost from our garden when the flowers are done.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
