Roseg or Rosegg

Post by illustrator on Mon Aug 09, 2010 5:08 pm

"Roseg" is mentioned as a locality of S. wulfenii on the list of Martin Haberer. Could it be that this is "Rosegg" near Villach, Austria? Note the difference in spelling.

If the plant is near Villach, it seems possible that it is in Slovenia as well (Rosegg is not very far from Slovenia). However, S. wulfenii is not on the Slovene lists (of course S. wulfenii ssp. juvanii is).

The spelling "Roseg" is correct, but incomplete: It should be Piz Roseg, a mountain in the Bernina chain on the border between Switzerland and Italy, to the south-west of the Bernina Pass where Sempervivum wulfenii grows as well.

Groetjes!
