Description

1-2" tall x 4-6" wide. Sempervivum arachnoideum (Cobweb Hens and Chicks) is a small-growing selection that is especially lovely with its tight rosettes of cobwebbed foliage. An outstanding rock garden plant, it grows slowly to form a tight mound of small "chicks," wedging itself in between the rocks. It should be deadheaded after blooming and the spent rosette should be removed to make room for fresh growth. It's a great windowsill specimen when planted into a small clay pot. Also known as Cobweb Houseleek or Cobweb Sedum. Plant with Aloinopsis, Phemeranthus.
