Talking about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Rosa Spumanti'), valleylynn wrote:

A comment by Truls Jensen:

Rosa Spumanti and Spumanti are siblings but individual cultivars. Spumanti was a volunteer seedling that was profusely netted and that produced many small offsets so that when grown in a container it appears to be foaming over, hence the name Spumanti (foam or sparkling in Italian). Rosa Spumanti is similar except the rosettes are slightly larger and blushed with red and not quite as 'sparkly'.

I'll take a look at the chapter this evening.

Information from Kevin Vaughn:

JungleShadows said:Lynn,
BTW I did hear from Janis Noyes that Gary did change the name from 'First Try' to 'Pacific First Try' even though it was introduced without the "Pacific" part.

Talking about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Streaker'), valleylynn wrote:

A comment from Kevin Vaughn:
JungleShadows said:There's an amusing story on 'Streaker'. When Ed sent in a picture of that plant to he Sempervivum Society Peter Mitchell didn't believe it and said "It must be an Aeonium". Of course that was really silly as Aeoniums would have NEVER survived the winter in OH!

I was surprised it is still around as it is such a slow grower. Even Ed, who could really grow them well, only had a few plants after several years.

@JungleShadows
Kevin would you take a look at photos for this semp. It appears we have two distinct types. Do you have a written description of 'Fair Lady'?
