Care and Propagation Information

General Care for Sempervivum ‘Mark Weller’

Sempervivum ‘Mark Weller’ is a great addition to cold hardy rock gardens. As it grows, its “chicks” spread out, creating ground cover.

Watering

Sempervivum ‘Mark Weller’ 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.

Where to Plant

Sempervivum ‘Mark Weller’ is cold hardy to -30° F (-34.4° C).

Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).

How to Propagate Sempervivum ‘Mark Weller’

Sempervivum ‘Mark Weller’ can be propagated from offsets.

Offsets

‘Mark Weller’ will produce small rosette offsets. Cut the offsets off from the main stem with a sharp, sterile knife or scissors. Allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before laying on well-draining soil.
