S. atlanticum - in general

Post by I'm the 1 on Tue Oct 28, 2008 6:29 am

S. atlanticum was first described by Ball.

This is the only Sempervivum found in the African continent - Great Atlas mountains of Morocco.

It was first collected in 1871 by J.D. Hooker, Maw and Ball.

Description: Rosettes are 4 to 8 cm in diameter, suberect, often lop-sided and asymmetrical, pale green. Flushed red when grown fully exposed to sun. Leaves are pubescent on both faces and abruptly contracted at the tips. Offsets are produced freely on very short stolons. Flower stalks are 15 to 25 cm high, having the tendency to produce flower-buds in the upper leaf-axils. Cauline leaves usually coloured bronze-red. Petals pale pink with a deep pink median band; filaments are crimson, anthers dull green. The flowers are rarely produced under cultivation.
