2.5" Sempervivum 'Pacific Blue Ice'
Sempervivum 'Pacific Blue Frost' is a hybrid forming rosettes to 3" in diameter with glaucous bluish-gray leaves that blush rose at tips and along margins. Leaves are fuzzy and have subtle coloring. In the past, Sempervivums were planted on roofs in Europe as it was believed that Semperivivums had the ability to protect the house from lightning strikes or other attacks. Sempervivums can provide colorful accents for rock gardens, dish gardens and often are used in strawberry pots, old bird baths, troughs, logs and other unusual plantings. Considered hardy to Zone 5. Requires porous soil with adequate drainage. Filtered light with ample airflow. Prefers shade during summer dormancy. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Although very cold tolerant, best to provide frost protection to prevent possible scarring.
