Sempervivum collection and alpine trough

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: poor to moderately fertile, well-drained soil with added grit
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    These decorative evergreen groundcovering plants can be used to great effect in troughs, alpine beds, stone walls and even to soften the gaps between paving slabs. In this collection, you will receive 6 different un-named types. They are all quite different, but they all have rosettes of succulent leaves and clusters of star-shaped summer flowers. After each rosette has produced flowers it will die off, but it is soon replaced with a new lateral rosette that will form on a runner.

    Made from reinforced cement with a realistic stone finish, the durable trough is supplied with pre-drilled drainage holes ready for planting.

    Measurements: L55cm x W37cm x H16cm

  • Garden care: Cut back spreading species after flowering. Water moderately when actively growing and avoid winter wet.
