Semponium 'Sienna' - Surreal Succulents

Product ref: H23676

Availability: In stock

Semponium Sienna is an outstanding brand new hybrid combining the hardiness of Sempervivum with the dramatic form of an Aeonium. This has resulted in a vibrant and majestic succulent - it will create a dramatic focal point in the house, balcony or the garden. Raised in Cornwall by plant nursery Surreal Succulents (who themselves sell the plant for £35) it has so far proven hardy to -4°C, so will be best in a sheltered spot until further testing on hardiness of a full British winter has been achieved. Semponium Sienna is the world’s first known intergeneric hybrid of Sempervivum and Aeonium species and has been named in honour of the daughter of the breeder.

Ideal to grow in full sun or part shade, it suits any garden including windy coastal gardens, gravel gardens, window boxes, pots and indoors. It will form a mounding succulent of around 40cms tall and wide with a large central rosette surrounded by multiple smaller ones.

This super succulent was a real star in the Chelsea Plant of the Year awards where it was first unveiled and launched - demand is high, and supply is short, so you'll be amongst the first in the world to own and grow one. In spring the green-eyed rosettes are sienna red, in strong light the colour becomes increasingly electric then darkens in autumn. Just look at the images which speak for themselves - with colours so vibrant and a form so unique, it is unlike anything we have ever seen before.

Supplied in appox 2 litre containers.
