My Sempervivum Blog forum: There’s Just Something About Those Tiny Semps!
Views: 10, Replies: 0 » Jump to the end
|I have a fair number of tiny semps in my collection. By tiny I mean less than an inch in diameter, many less than a half inch in diameter. Many of them are arachnoideums, so they’re fuzzy on top of being tiny. Kind of like little baby animals. Well, not really, but pretty cute anyway. When they pile up they form adorable little clumps and many of them will form “sheets” of semps that hang over a rock or the side of a container. They’re fun because you can put them in spaces where larger semps won’t fit. They grow great in holes in rocks. They seem to do well in containers, which is nice because you can pick them up to get a closer look. And if you lack garden space you can still fit a lot of plants in a small area. Sure, a big semp with its large leaves and bold colors command attention, but don’t let these tiny cuties sneak past you because they add a whole new dimension to your sempervivum collections.
