Sempervivum 'Black'

$ 6.00
Size: 2"

Embodying the mystery and allure of its name, Sempervivum 'Black' is a captivating succulent that originates from the high altitudes of Europe. Its leaves, a deep shade of purple so rich they appear almost black, form tight rosettes that can create a striking contrast in any garden or container. The leaves are thick and fleshy, with pointed tips that sometimes show a lighter, green hue, adding to the plant's dramatic appearance. This hardy perennial will typically reach up to 4 inches in height and spread out to about 6 inches in width, with the potential to cover more ground as it produces offsets.

Sempervivum 'Black' is not only prized for its unique coloration but also for its resilience and ease of care, making it an ideal choice for beginner gardeners or those looking for low-maintenance plants. It thrives in rock gardens, on green roofs, or in any sunny spot where its colors can truly shine. When grown in containers, it adds an element of sophistication, especially when paired with lighter-colored succulents for contrast.

During the summer months, Sempervivum 'Black' surprises with star-shaped, pink flowers that rise on stalks above the foliage, attracting bees and butterflies. These blooms add an extra layer of interest to an already stunning plant. After flowering, the mother rosette dies, encouraging the growth of new offsets around her base, ensuring the cycle of life continues in your garden or pot. This self-propagating feature makes Sempervivum 'Black' a gift that keeps on giving, year after year.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
