Talking about Hen and chicks (Sempervivum 'Pinkerine'), valleylynn wrote:

I received this information from Matts Jopson, Director of Sales & Marketing.
Matts Jopson said:This is actually a strange variant of ‘Silverine’ that we found mislabeled amongst our old stock of Sempervivums. We couldn’t figure out what it actually is called, so we just decided to name it ‘Pinkerine’ to contrast its color with the original ‘Silverine’.

If you have any other ideas about what it could be, I’d love to hear them, because we do strive for accuracy in our listings.

Thanks,
Matts Jopson, Director of Sales & Marketing


It is unkown whether it is a seedling amongst the group of 'Silverine', or an actual variant of 'Silverine'.
In either case we cannot show the breeder as Sandy MacPherson, but it sure is a beauty.

Have had this plant for a few years and never noticed the coloration this time of year, streaked with pink on the leaves.

Talking about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Cobweb Joy'), valleylynn wrote:

Quote from Kevin Vaughn.

JungleShadows said:'Cobweb Joy' is a sister to 'Denise's Cobweb' and 'Kanno's Cobweb' although it was not named by Patty. I'm not sure whether it was Helen or Shirley Rempel that named the plant for her. All 3 tend to produce thicker stolons and fewer increase than other cobwebs so the clumps are a bit more open. 'Denise's Cobweb' produces many fasciated rosettes and passes that trait onto its seedlings.
