PF stands for Paul Furse.

He is an amateur botanist who, after his retirement from the Navy, spent several years searching & travelling to remote locations in the Near East - Turkey and Iran, and collected many plants, also other species, not only Sempervivums.

RH stands for Ralf Hillmann, a Swiss Sempervivum collector.

Cromaphyto I have plant labeled with code
FOL 2006/02B. I know that 'OL' is your name and surname but what's with this 'F'?
Btw. plant is a very good grower and looks amazing!


In my collection I also have some coded names that might be useful:

MCS = Mark Smith (Bristol, UK)

CW = Cees van den Wittenboer (NL)

M.
= Peter Mitchell (UK)

H
= Henk ‘t Hart (NL)

BZ
= Ben Zonneveld (NL)

MM
