Sempervivum Electra is low growing with lovely vibrant green rosettes. The tips of each rosette are etched in a dark red colour. Sempervivums are succulent perennials that form rosettes of succulent leaves that will often spread fast to form mats. They tend to spread rapidly in favourable conditions via offsets and are valued as ground cover for dry, sunny locations. Their ability to store water in their thick leaves allows them to live in sunny and rocky places through out mountains. Most are hardy and will handle warm climates. They grow as tufts of perennial but monocarpic rosettes. Each rosette propagates asexually by lateral rosettes or offsets. Typically, each plant grows for several years before flowering. The colour of the flowers are reddish, yellowish, pinkish, or seldomly whiteish. They tend to have more than 6 petals. After flowering the plant dies, usually leaving many offsets it has produced during its life. Sempervivums also make suitable plants for containers, and do well in breathable terracoota, concrete, roof shingles, and anywhere else that allows adequate root drainage.
