Gold Nugget Sempervivum
Gold Nugget is a very cool new Sempervivum selection that changes colors drastically throughout the seasons. In summer it is a nice yellow-green with pink tinges but in the cooler months the leaves because a bright golden yellow with deep red tips! Quite stunning, especially during the darker months of the year. Plant it in the rock garden, grow it as a houseplant or let it spread itself over a rock wall!
