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

Absolutely love this semp! One of my all time favorites. Goes through many color changes, but unlike most semps this one has fantastic colors even during the hottest part of the summer. It's a large plant with many of mine being 9" +. I have it planted in several places in my yard and it looks a bit different in every area, but always beautiful. Produces lots of chicks once established. Give it plenty of room to grow.

Great semp, quite large and goes through lots of color changes. Produces many offsets, so give it plenty of room to grow. An added bonus is the beautiful watermarks. Most semps have pink flowers, but this has a creamy off-white flower with a green stripe down each petal, and the flower stalks are huge!

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

I find 'Oddity' to be quite temperamental when planted in the ground in our zone 4 climate. It tends to rot in the spring from too much moisture when the snow melts. I built a bit of a mound for it this summer with lots of grit incorporated into the soil. We'll see if that helps.

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.

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.
