In a quest for the darkest purple-red sempervivum, Vaughn created his new hybrid Borscht. It's a huge, beet root red-purple variety that keeps its color year round. Even from the very beginning Vaughn knew this was a spectacular sempervivum variety.

Sempervivum, or Hens & Chicks grow in a fantastic clump/mat of colorful rosettes. Plants thrive in porous soil with full to part sun. Soil and light conditions can change the look of the varieties drastically. Once established, sempervivum are drought tolerant. As an added benefit, succulents are deer resistant. These plants can survive when grown indoors, but they look their best when grown outside.
