Beard of Jupiter
The genus Jovibarba translates to the Beard of Jupiter for some stupid reason. Stupid Latin.
Anyway, these are a fantastic species of Hens and Chicks very closely related to the Sempervivums in the Crassulaceae family, found exclusively in the mountains of Southeastern Europe. And in gardens all around the world too. I like these flowers a lot more than most Sempervivum flowers, which are generally icky.
Stupid and icky all in one little blog post! I must be 12 years old!
