I'm currently living in zone 7 and I'm working on creating more gardens around my house. I'm currently obsessed with dahlias and peonies🌻🌹

Good morning everyone!😊 I'm having mixed feelings with my sempervivums blooming. I really wish they didn't die after flowering, but I guess I have enough pups to fill the empty spaces when they finally kick the bucket... I still feel sad about it, as these have been with me for a while, through mealy bugs and scale.😢 At the very least the flowers are pretty. #sempervivum #sempervivumflowers #sempervivums #latespring #flowers #collage #terminalflower

I guess I would feel the same. But at least they thank you for your good care with such beautiful flowers before they die 🙂

Lovely! I’ve similar view, I bought a new one recently and noticed yesterday it’s already started to flower before producing any offsets 😕

@richard.spicer.7906 Yeah, I believe stress can cause them to bloom earlier. I moved mine to an area that gets full sun all day, and I think the summer heat is too much for them to handle...

Oh that’s interesting, maybe I should move mine to a different location. Thanks, I’ll do a bit of reading on this 😊👍🏼
