Houseleek Bicolor

We have had several days of warm weather up here in the north.

That seems to suite the Houseleeks (Sempervivum calcareum ‘Bicolor’) well and they are enjoying the full sun.

Must try to look for more of these plants now that I have finally found the perfect spot for them.

Mountain Houseleek

I have always had difficulties to have the Houseleeks (Sempervivum montanum “Mountain Houseleek”) overwinter.

Finally found a spot just above the lake surface. Only about 30 centimeters from the waterline which gets plenty of sunshine.

For some reason the Houseleeks survive the cold winters on this spot even though I loose them from the other places.
