A commonly cultivated perennial succulent plant of garden rockeries, very rarely found as a persistent colonist of old walls. Formerly also frequent on thatched house roofs, but now rarely found in this habitat, and in general the plant is much rarer as a 'wild' plant than fifty or more years ago.

Introduced; native to southern Europe.

All names: Sempervivum tectorum L.
