This brand new variety from Kevin Vaughn is a knock-out. Absolutely one of the darkest varieties you'll see and it holds its color well. The offsets of Patent Leather Shoes are bright green and just pop against the dark mother plant giving it an unreal look.

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.

    This one was a part of my first order. All plants came in their best shape and with multiple offsets. They are like dark gems. This variety is the darkest of them. At the base of each leaf it was dark red. It looked like a flame is somewhere inside. Now it’s color changed a bit. In the middle of the main rosette have appeared leaves with golden base. It’s leaf tips became more black. I would add a picture if I could, but pictures can’t catch this sparkle of beauty.
    Great company. I’ve got a premium freebie with my order! Thank you! This was a big surprise
