Have You Seen A Flowering Sempervivum?

It was such a wonder for me seeing flowers I seldom see. But yes, I have saw some flowers of these so-called Sempervivum in our garden. I remember buying these plants 5 years ago. These flowering plants of about 40 species belongs to Crassulaceae family. It is also know as houseleeks.

I was so happy one day when I saw flowers of Sempervivum in our garden. Now, they are scattering in our garden. I hope to see more flowers next time. One thing I love about these plants, they always come  back after winter time.

Other common names include liveforever and hen and chicks. They are succulent perennials forming mats composed of tufted leaves in rosettes. In favourable conditions they spread rapidly via offsets, and several species are valued in cultivation as groundcover for dry, sunny spots.
