Kevin Vaughn has outdone himself with his latest creation. Heart of Darkness is a huge multileaved rosette with an upright habit. The green rosettes are nearly black on the bottom 2/3rds of the leaf. This variety is a unique cross of two other great varieties, Killer' X 'Jungle Shadows.

Sempervivum Overview:

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.
