Renata,

Is this the sort of thing you'd like to have? Pictures of plants? I think this is what it is but I don't have the description handy. Anyway, I'll keep adding them unless you don't want me to.

Yes, thank you for posting pics, Jeff! Do not worry, description follows!



S. ossetiense was first described by Walle in 1942.



Habitat: Georgia - Ossetia (former Soviet Union), on limestone, at about 1.500 m above sea level.


Description:

Rosettes are almost round (see the upper photos!), diamether about 3 cm.

Stollons are up to 20 cm long.

Leaves have small brown tips.

Flower has a diamether of 2,5 cm, pink with purple stripe in the middle of petal.



On photos above the fact that stolons have small leaves can be observed.

Sorry, but this is not Sempervivum ossetiense as described. This is a plant from the site by the Irik river on the Caucasus.

At present the area is very dangerous and not appropriate for her to attend :-(

About Ossetia:

Ossetia is a region located on both sides of the Greater Caucasus Mountains, largely inhabited by the Ossetians.

The South Ossetians declared independence from Georgia in 1990, calling themselves the "Republic of South Ossetia".

The northern part of the region consists of the republic of North Ossetia-Alania within the Russian Federation.

It's the region of Ossetia that gave the name to the plant.

In Urs Eggli book Sukkulentenlexikon: Crassulaceae it is stated that only the Georgian part of Ossetia is the habitat of S. ossetiense.
