Sempervivum calcareum (Tectorum Group) – Houseleek: Sempervivum calcareum, commonly referred to as Houseleek, is a charming and resilient succulent known for its distinctive rosette shape and hardy nature. It belongs to the Sempervivum genus, which comprises a variety of succulent species and cultivars.
Rosette Form: Houseleek forms compact rosettes composed of thick, fleshy leaves arranged in concentric circles. These rosettes typically measure several inches in diameter.
Leaf Color: The leaves of Houseleek can vary in color depending on factors like sunlight and season. They often display shades of green, tinged with red or purple at the leaf tips.
Leaf Shape: The leaves are lance-shaped and taper to a point, with a slightly concave, cup-like appearance.
Clumping Growth: Houseleek produces offsets (baby plants) abundantly, resulting in clusters of rosettes that spread and fill containers or garden beds. This clumping habit adds a sense of fullness and vitality to the planting.
Light: Provide Houseleek with bright, indirect sunlight to full sun for optimal growth. It thrives in well-lit conditions.
Watering: Houseleek is highly drought-tolerant. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Water sparingly, especially during the dormant winter period.
Temperature: Houseleek is quite hardy and can tolerate a wide range of temperatures. It is suitable for USDA hardiness zones 5 to 8.
Soil: Use well-draining soil, such as a succulent or cactus mix, to ensure proper drainage.
Propagation: Houseleek can be propagated easily by detaching offsets or by collecting seeds. Simply replant the offsets or sow the seeds in well-draining soil.
