Sempervivums, the iconic houseleek, have been a firm favourite for a good while and its easy to see why these on trend Succulent plants are going nowhere!
Having made a welcome return to our homes in previous years, gardeners are falling in love once again with the houseleek and discovering that they are a real multipurpose plant - ideal in pots on the patio or balcony.
Be part of this succulent revolution and buy yours now - let yourself be won over by these fascinating, low-maintenance perennials. Available in a range of colours and sizes, colours deepen in winter as the weather becomes colder.
Sempervivums form rosettes of colourful, evergreen, succulent leaves and are low growing. They are extremely popular as a living carpet of green tones and an ideal candidate for green roofs and living walls as they're recommended as an ideal plant to help adapt our gardens to climate change.
Also known as hen and chicks, sempervivums are drought tolerant and will grow in the narrowest of cracks - hence their common name, as they were once used to plug gaps in leaking roofs.
This resurgence in popularity has been driven in part by their undemanding nature - they're very much a 'plant-it-and-leave-it' type of plant - easy to grow and a doddle to maintain, fully winter hardy and produce multiple new plants every year.
As a bonus during the summer, the mature rosettes throw out spikes topped with star shaped flowers which insects love, plus they produce offsets, or new plants, every season that are simple to separate and grow as new specimens.
Super easy to grow and a favourite with kids! Sempervivums require a well-drained soil in full sun, tolerating drought when established.
