Here is a quote from Kevin Vaughn about Sempervivum 'Silver Thaw':

JungleShadows said:I can tell you the story of this one.
Mina Colvin loved arachnoideum 'Tomentosum' and wanted to see what variations it might produce from seed. She grew a large number and sent a slide of the group of seedlings in our round robin that eventually became SFAN. I saw two that looked distinctive in the slide and said "pull these two out and grow them on". Those two turned out to be 'Raspberry Ice' and 'Silver Thaw', both great plants although frustrating as parents because they produce few seeds. Both grow great for me although my colony of 'Silver Thaw' looks a bit chimeric, as some of the rosettes are differently colored than the rest. Generally I would blame seedlings, but not in this case.

Patty's plant does not look right to me. It should never show more than a blush of pink. It is similar to 'Lilac Time' but more silver-colored.

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

Some interesting information from Kevin Vaughn about S. 'Lipstick', showing the relationship between S. 'Ohio Burgundy' and his hybrid S. 'Lipstick'.

JungleShadows said:'Ohio Burgundy' is a nice one. Ed thought it might have come from 'Cleveland Morgan' even though he grew just mixed bee seed. You don't see 'Cleveland Morgan' offered much any more because it has been superseded by others. I'm sure my 'Lipstick' has 'Cleveland Morgan' as a pollen parent as it was blooming next to the plant of 'Silverine' that was harvested for that seedling crop.
