Stuffed Olive is a kaleidoscope of color. Bright greens and reds mix on this medium sized rosette. Kevin hybridized this variety to tease the well known Sempervivum hybridizer, Ed Skrocki. Ed send Kevin a semp variety that he hadn't even introduced yet (S. Olivette). When Kevin saw it he thought that Ed's green 'Olive' had to be stuffed. So, he crossed it with red varieties until he got a great green/red bi-color.

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.
