Even though 'Positively Glowing' is a sibling to 'Fashion Diva', this plant is TOTALLY different. The leaves are fairly wide and the rosette is of medium size. The spring color is EXTREME though; it really does glow in a most unusual shade of red shot through with purple. One garden visitor described it as "electric". Later the rosettes darken to a deep red before turning olive green in the fall. The name was inspired by a BBC reporter's description of Duchess Kate's condition, saying "the duchess is positively glowing". Thank you BBC for such an appropriate name for this novel plant.

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.

    The plant is nice in size and already showing its color. Can't wait til it begins to show off completely.
