Product Details

Product Details

This first ever Sempervivum with golden foliage is bound to get lots of attention. It’s a unique variety that puts on an extended color show. The fleshy leaves, which are tipped in red, change to bright green in summer, and back to gold with fiery red tips in winter. Hardy to Zone 4 and robust, this succulent will keep the colors coming unless it’s covered in snow. PP 28,284

The name of this genus was derived by Pliny from semper vivo and means, literally, live forever. Although each leaf rosette dies after flowering, there always seems to be an abundance of new offsets (the "chicks") to take its place. These fleshy, evergreen plants are invaluable, carefree elements for troughs, rock gardens, or wall crevices. They are content in average to poor soil as long as it is very well-drained and in full sun. It's hard to limit yourself to just one variety.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED

The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

WHEN WE SHIP

We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

OUR GUARANTEE

We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

White Flower Farm

A viewer from CONNECTICUT

This is completely unlike WFF in that everything else I have bought has arrived perfectly packed and in their pots with covers and lots of secure boxes. These arrived out of their pots, dry as a bone and one was squashed very badly and the other broken into 3 pieces. Each was in their tall box, but why weren't they secured as usual? I scooped up the pitiful, little guys and hydrated them, then planted them. It's just so NOT like WFF that I am incredibly disappointed. My plants have to travel all the way to New Mexico - I get it; but I buy from WFF because I know they will get here in great shape. Or did.

I am sorry to learn these plants did not stay secure in the boxes during transit and I will be contacting you via email regarding compensation.
Sincerely,
Cathy

Squashed plants!

A viewer from Las Cruces, NM

I have received many plants from WFF and all arrived in perfect condition EXCEPT THESE 2, they arrived out of their pots, dry as bones and beaten to a pulp. One is literally crushed into pieces. So disappointed! I planted the "remains" in a pot to see if they could be salvaged and/or rehydrated, but, for the price, I expected white glove packing and treatment for these little cuties. Sad!

Ordered two plants. One was in good shape the other was out of the packing / pot and kinda smashed up. Looks rather distressed. Will plant them tomorrow and hope for the best. Neither of them resemble the color like the photos. They are more burgundy and cream in color.

I am sorry one of the plants was damaged during transit Blake. As all of our products are guaranteed to arrive in good condition I will be contacting you directly via email.
Sincerely,

Latin Name Pronunciation: sem-per-vie'vum  

CULTURE: Sempervivum plants need full sun. Plants prefer average to rather poor, sandy or rocky soil, which must drain quickly. Do not fertilize. Space 6" apart. Plants have few problems except when soil is too heavy or too damp. In Europe, plants are often grown tucked into corners of rooftops, without the benefit of any soil at all. That led to another common name, Houseleeks.

SUGGESTED USE: In rock gardens, trough gardens, wall crevices, dry gardens, edging, in strawberry jars or other containers.

"Sempervivum" means "lives forever," which plants seem to do under the correct conditions. The original rosette of leaves dies after it flowers, two, three, or more years after planting. But by then, new offsets are already there to take the place of the mother plant. "Hens and Chickens" refers to the fact that a mature clump reminds one of a hen surrounded by her chicks.
