'Helen Payne' is a large, dark grey Sempervivum with a very strong dark orchid-purple center to the rosette that makes the plant very striking. A strong grower that produces many increase, like its parent Jungle Shadows. This Sempervivum honors the matriarch of the Sempervivum nursery growers in the USA. She introduced the hybrids of Kevin Vaughn when he was a teenager. When she saw Jungle Shadows for the first time she called Kevin and said "We're going to sell lots of that one, Kevin!" She would be equally enthusiastic about this very improved version that Kevin has named for her too.

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.
