Botany picture #18: Sempervivum tectorum

Sempervivum tectorum (Crassulaceae), a succulent that I had on my own balcony in 2005. Although one generally keeps them for the leaf rosettes, the flowers are pretty too. Over the years, I built up quite a nice collection of succulents and Lamiaceae but had to give everything away when I moved to Australia due to quarantine restrictions.


  1. Leaving my plants behind was the hardest part of my international move. I still think about my enormous gangly Euphorbia aphylla. You should considering hosting or submitting a post to the Berry Go Round plant carnival!

  2. Thanks for pointing that site out to me, I had not seen it before.
