Sempervivum 'Comet'

$ 6.00 Sold out
Size: 2"

Embodying the cosmic allure of its namesake, Sempervivum 'Comet' is a captivating succulent hailing from the rugged terrains of Europe. This hardy perennial is characterized by its symmetrical rosettes, showcasing a dynamic blend of deep purples and vibrant greens that seem to mirror the night sky. Each leaf is tipped with a striking red hue, reminiscent of a comet's fiery tail, making it a celestial spectacle in any garden or container.

Sempervivum 'Comet' thrives in rocky, well-drained soil, reaching a modest size of about 4 inches in both height and width. Its ability to withstand drought and cold makes it an ideal candidate for those seeking a low-maintenance yet visually stunning plant. When planted en masse, 'Comet' creates a stunning, dense tapestry of color and texture, but it also stands out as a solitary specimen, especially when its rosettes start to cascade over the edges of pots and planters, adding an element of otherworldly charm to your outdoor space.

As if its striking foliage wasn't enough, Sempervivum 'Comet' further enchants with its summer bloom of star-shaped, pink flowers, which rise above the foliage on tall stalks, attracting pollinators and adding yet another layer of visual interest. These blooms signify the plant's cycle of renewal, as 'Comet' is a monocarpic species, flowering once before dying, but not without first producing offsets to continue its legacy.

Whether nestled in a rock garden, accenting a green roof, or adding flair to a container arrangement, Sempervivum 'Comet' is a celestial marvel that promises to bring a touch of the cosmos to your garden landscape.


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!
