Probably not J. hirta var hillebrandtii ...

Post by illustrator on Wed Apr 04, 2012 3:22 pm

Was labelled Jovibarba hirta var. hillebrandtii.


To conclude the short discussion about this plant, I decided to place a picture here. Actually, I think that it is not even a Jovibarba ...

Hm, this looks as good old Sempervivum to me ... Definitely it's not a Jovibarba!!!

I found on the German forum that there's a cultivar named Hillebrandii, so without "t". Only, it is listed as an arachnoideum-cultivar. This might have caused the confusion, or maybe it is only adding confusion ... Link to the German forum:

It's solved! I asked the grower and he mailed me that it is J. heuffelii cultivar Xanthoheuff. Renata, can you please move this subject?

And if anyone is interested in the p'lant please contact me: I intend to to give it away since I am less interested in cultivars. Note that it is small and I'd rather give it away to someone who can come and get it (not sure if it would survive postage).

The plant never grew at all and died in the winter 2012-2013.

Since then I obtained 3 clones of the "true" Jovibarba hirta var. hillebrandtii. I am not sure if they are genetically different or just labelled slightly different but will grown them seperately for in case. Nice plants, but indeed totally different from the plant on the picture above.
