Sempervivum 'Oddity'

From our patio area comes this pot of Sempervivum 'Oddity', in the midst of a planting of Sedum reflexum 'Angelina'. The oddity was developed by succulent enthusiast Sandy McPherson way back in 1977. It promptly won the 1978 Bronze Rosette Award for best new variety and is widely available today. 'Angelina is certainly showy and very useful in landscaping, but can take over if not used judiciously.

  1. Must have missed the original post! Thank you for identifying the plant I bought in Carson, Washington last week (May 2012) as the "Oddity" you posted about last year.
