‘Red Beauty’ sports medium sized fairly open rosettes of grey-green leaves with blood-red tips. This color may vary from season to season. Clusters of light pink flowers are produced in midsummer. Like all Sempervivum the larger center rosette is called the hen” which sprouts many smaller rosettes around it called “chicks”. As the plants age the “hen” may die out and be replaced by the “”chicks””. Plants can be divided easily at any time by pulling up some of the “chicks” and replanting them elsewhere.
This plant is particularly effective when planted in the cracks and crevices of stone walls or walkways. It is also very attractive in containers.
