Talking about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Pacific Hepsport'), goldfinch4 wrote:

"There is no information about P. Hepsport being a sport of 'Hep' although it does have a strong tendency to produce red streaks. As for tracing it back to Gary Gossett, there were several named Pacifics that came from seedlings selected by Gary, but were not necessarily named by him, so the origin of the name is not certain." --Thank you to Don at SMG for sharing this information with us.

Kevin Vaughn gave us an interesting bit of history on the naming of this lovely sempervivum. Here is a quote from him.
JungleShadows said:Lynn,
Did you know that the "HEP" actually stands for "Helen E. Payne"?? Gary didn't dare name one for her so he sort of cheated and used her initials instead.

Extremely heavy webbing on this plant! Rather small but a good producer.

How to distinguish S. 'Crispyn' and S. 'Crispyn / Typ Wills'

such a long time Howard J. Wills distributed a wrong plant under the name S. 'Crispyn'; it has been wide spread in the collections all over europe;

after clearing this mistake we gave this plant the addition "/Typ Wills" because it is such a beauty;

if you want to distinguish the two varieties look at the edge of the leaves;
