Houseleeks or Sempervivum

I fondly remember Houseleeks growing in my grandmother’s garden as a child. They’re a great plant to start children or indeed, any beginners into gardening as they are very forgiving. They’ll survive in poor dry places where other plants would fail and once they’re established if you forget to water them, well they won’t mind too much. Their Latin name ‘Sempervivum’ translates as ‘always living’ illustrating this ability and the fact that they keep their leaves all year round.
Sempervivums come in a range of leaf colours; red, green, orangey brown and the leaves become more colourful in poorer drier conditions.
Planting them in a bowl as a centrepiece for a garden table or on the patio is a great way to enjoy these succulents as it brings them nearer to eye-level so they can be more easily admired. It also means that they don’t have to compete with other more vigorous plants in the border and as the fertiliser in the compost starts to run out so their leaves become even more colourful.
