This photo was taken in early April when the center part is so vibrant. That's just one thing interesting about Sempervirvum: their seasonal color Also, the hen and the chicks can look so different from each other, even though the chicks are attached to the hen. Sun and season both affect color. "Flamingo" is reputed to have tips dipped in red later on. Full sun, drought tolerant. Quarts. Zones 5-10.
