Two new varieties added

Posted by Rebecca Scott on

We've just added two more modern varieties: 'Autumn Fire' and 'Tintenblut'. 'Autmn Fire' actually looks good at any time, with its striking/contrasting red and green colours. This is a small type, not dissimilar to 'Green Globe' - apart from the added bright colour combination and a slightly smaller size. 'Tintenblut' translates as "Bleeding Ink" and is an exceptionally dark coloured sempervivum or houseleek - effectively "black" - with a great form. It's already popular with sempervivum enthusiasts on mainland Europe.

We recently added 'Banyan', 'Deep Fire', 'Doeskin', 'Koala', 'Lavender & Old Lace', and 'Pink Lemonade' - all worthy of being included in our "best of the best" varieties.

Towards the end of last year, we also introduced two other modern sempervivums: 'Popocatepetl' and 'Tesoro'. Again, we've trialled them and they're superb and vigorous.
