Thanks @gjones That's a shame about yours 😮 I like these ones, but I'm not keen on the ones that have a small flower on a long stalk, at least not when they're in individual pots, maybe in a mixed group planting I may prefer them. These seem more 'cactus-flower-like'

@Jasonsparkes1 Try with a couple of the smaller offsets. If they make it then you'll know they'll all do okay. We just have the plain green variety of houseleek. It multiplies easily and survives our winters but doesn't like too much water - we have to plant ours in a very dry and sunny spot!
