Sempervivum 'Ohio Burgundy'

I don't think I've ever posted any of the succulent alpines before. Though often viewed as "common" since the multiply so rapidly and are often shared from neighbor's gardens, there are some really wonderful cultivars which show off nicely in a rock garden. This one's an old timer: Ohio Burgundy.

We obtained our first "semps" back in the 60's from Helen Payne's nursery in the Willamette Valley. She wrote the now out-of-print classic "Plant Jewels of the High Country". They're often referred to as "Hens and Chicks", but of course so are Echeverias.
