Sempervivum ‘Pippin’ is part of the ‘Lord of the Rings’ collection, a lovely cultivar, bearing large rosettes of deep green, spatula-shaped leaves with dark purple tips. … New plants can be propagated by gently teasing out the little baby rosettes (chicks) which appear around the major plant (chicken), and transplant to a new place.
Sempervivum ‘Pippin’ was awarded a Gold Rosette in 1980 by the now-defunct Sempervivum Society. Introduced by Betty Z. Bronow (U.S.A.). Fascinating, symmetrical rosettes and good color. A smaller selection. Appropriately named after the brave-but-small hobbit personality in The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Often called houseleeks, sempervivums, or hen-and-chicks, are hardy, succulent, alpine plants that grow in the wild between rocks in mountainous areas. They look superb when grown in containers, in rock yards, and in completely dry stone walls and splits in paving, especially along with low evergreen plants such as sedums.
In summertime high, cone-like spikes of greenish pink flowers emerge from the facility of mature plants.
