Strange sempervivum, counts as accent?

Post  Sakaki on Mon Oct 22, 2012 7:57 pm

I and my sons made a camp last weekend in a valley of which altitude was approx. 7000-7500 feet.
During our trekking, we found many strange and interesting plants.
The following is one of them.
Does anyone know its name, & can it be good accent plant?

(It has awesome green & red tones, and leaves have red borders)

Merhaba Sakaki Bey Wink,

To try and find the species, you can have a look at this great site :

SEDUMPHOTOS.NET (there's a section on other succulents)

At the bottom of this page (in French) a list of sempervivums.

Au Cactus Francophone

It may also be a hybrid of Echeverria, some of them are hardy.

A very interesting plant anyway. Can it be a good accent plant? Yes, of course: the dimension, the colours of trhe pot, the shapes must match or respond to those of the tree it accompanies, but yes, any nice plant can be used as kusamono or shitakusa.

Hi Rui,

No, I just took this one. But I can take some more if you would like to see.

Salut Monsieur Alain Smile

Nice Turkish! ThumbsUp
Thank you very much for infos & helpful links.
As a result of my searches it seems that the name of it is Euphorbia myrsinites L. var. though I'm still not sure 100%.

Je vous remercie beaucoup pour votre aide Smile

I have grown Euphorbia myrsinites and it does bear a passing resemblance to this one, but it doesn't look the same to me. Does yours bleed a white milky/latex like sap? Euphorbia does.

Hi Kev,

Though all my searches prove that it is a Euphorbia myrsinites, I could not be sure when I compared mine to the pics I found on net.
The significant difference between appearance of mine and those that google shows is "red border" on leaf edges. However, all info I gathered says that this red border shows up in autumn/winter (not all the year round).
And yes, it bleeds a white milky & adhesive sap when cut.
Do you have an opportunity to upload a pic of yours? I would like to see it.

Thanks
Taner

Sadly I can't upload a photo. It was at my last house where I had a large alpine bed. The E myrsinites was on the edge of a raised bed and grew to approx 1m across. Possibly too vigorous for an accent planting but root restriction may work. The thing that I really enjoyed was the explosive popping of seed heads on warm dry days. I don't remember them ever gaining a red edge to the leaves.

May be mine is a different var. because it was not so tall.
I planted it in a very small pot to restrict its growth as you've said, I hope it works as a kusamono!
Thanks for the info btw.
