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.
