General Care for Sempervivum heuffelii ‘Lemon Sky'
Sempervivum heuffelii ‘Lemon Sky' is a great addition to rock and container gardens. It also grows well on green roofs.
Sempervivum heuffelii ‘Lemon Sky' has typical watering needs for a succulent. It's best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. It can be more finicky than other Sempervivums when it comes to water. When in doubt, err on the side of under watering to avoid root rot. Be sure to plant in well-draining soil.
Where to Plant
‘Lemon Sky' is cold hardy to -30°F (-34.4°C), and will do fine in the winter under a blanket of snow. It grows best in partial sun to partial shade.
How to Propagate Sempervivum heuffelii ‘Lemon Sky'
Sempervivum heuffelii ‘Lemon Sky' is easily propagated, but is done a little differently than other Sempervivums.
Using a sterile knife or sharp pair of scissors, separate clumps to be propagated from the main plant cluster. You'll want to get some of the roots with the stem if at all possible. This will help the plant root faster.
Allow cuttings to callous over for several days before replanting in either the ground or well-draining succulent soil.
Please note that ‘Lemon Sky' will not come true from seed.
