Product Information

'Lemon Flare' is a NEW & EXCLUSIVE variety of Sempervivum arachnoideum that will make a spectacular addition to your succulent collection.

Sempervivums, the iconic houseleek, were the mainstay of 70's municipal borders and park displays, but today, they have worked their magic and are making a welcome return to our gardens, as people realise that they are a real multipurpose plant.

Sempervivums form rosettes of colourful, fleshy leaves and are low growing, making them extremely popular as a living carpet of green and an ideal candidate for green roofs and living walls - a welcome addition to any garden because of their colours and diversity of form.

'Lemon Flare' is a fascinating variety that changes colours with the seasons. The base of the yellow leaves takes on an eye-catching and intense shade of red during the spring and summer months creating a superb bi-coloured finish. Plus, being an arachnoideum variety, in the autumn and winter months, 'Lemon Flare' has prominent webbing providing you with year-round interest.

Sempervivums are also known as hen and chicks because the freely produced offsets gather around the mother plant in much the same way as chicks around a mother hen. Sempervivums are drought tolerant and will take a roothold in the narrowest of cracks - hence their common name, as they were once used to plug gaps in leaking roofs. Recommended as an ideal plant to spearhead the need to adapt our gardens to be more responsive to climate change.

This resurgence in popularity has been driven in part by their undemanding nature - they're very much a 'plant-it-and-leave-it' type of plant - easy to grow and a doddle to maintain, fully winter hardy and produce multiple new plants every year.

Really easy to grow and a favourite with kids, Sempervivums require a well-drained soil in full sun, tolerating drought when established.

Supplied as 3 x established plants in 9cm pots, ready to pot on or plant out.

Care Information

  • Plant in full sun in well-drained soil.
  • Sempervivum plants prefer well-drained soil with sand or grit added. Grow them in trays or pots, in the ground, or on wood or in rock piles.
  • Once established, the plantís need no further care.
  • Once a rosette flowers, it dies back so simply pull out the dead rosette and fill the hole with gritty soil.
  • The plant will quickly fill in any empty spots with offsets.
