Succulent Container Garden Update

It didn't take long for me to find the perfect sempervivum for my tabletop succulent container garden. In a previous story, I temporarily used an agave since I couldn't find the perfect sempervivum (Hens and Chicks) on my first shopping trip. Now, all of the plants used in the container are hardy for zones 3-9 with the same growing conditions.

Sempervivum 'Commander Hay' has replaced the agave as the focal point. 'Commander Hay' has the nice, deep merlot color that I wanted for the arrangement.

The other sempervivums include 'Icicle' (left) and 'Red Rubin' (right). A bit of blue sedum (center) from my garden was added for variety.
