Our February box featuring Sempervivum Spring Beauty, Sedum Fire Storm, Sedum Green Jelly Bean, and Aloe Tiger Tooth.

1. Sempervivum Spring Beauty

Sempervivum Spring Beauty (Hen and Chicks) is a hardy evergreen perennial succulent with light green leaves, producing masses of small offsets during the summer.

Each plant grows for several years before flowering. The colour of the flowers is reddish, yellowish, pinkish, whitish.

The plants need plenty of outdoor sunlight to show their best colors and maintain a tight rosette form.

Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Reduce watering to a minimum during winter.

2. Sedum Fire Storm

Sedum Adolphii, also known as Golden Sedum, is a tender succulent that grows up to 8 inches (20 cm) tall. It is a groundcover that forms rosettes of green-yellow leaves, up to 1.4 inches (3.5 cm) long.

Sedum Adolphii develops orange or red hue when it receives a great amount of sunlight. As the rosettes mature, they grow new leaves at the center and shed the older leaves on the soil. These old leaves can root and grow into new plants.

Sedum Adolphii produces small cream-colored flower heads in spring.
