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.

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

Quote from Kevin Vaughn.

JungleShadows said:When Helen first listed 'Tamerlane' in 1977 it did not have a "b' in it but the Alpine Gardens of 1980 adds the b back into the name. It seems to be more commonly spelled with the additional b now. Patty made the cross of 'Sanford Hybrid' X montanum var. stiriacum to produce a coppery brown with velvet. Some of the seedlings from this cross were smooth and she wondered if some were contaminated by the bees. However, I think the cross is true. The flower colors are what one would expect from such a mating as well as the rosettes.
