That is a nice Jovi, Rick :)

Trond, sorry to hear, that's a tough situation, esp since you are not there full time :(

Yes, I really am angry >:( I (and everybody else here) have talked to him several times and he always says he can't find out where the sheep (more like goats) escape (my niece found the place - they climb a steep rocky wall).

If he lives and farms there full time, it seems like maybe he does not consider part time residents with only display gardens very important..

I think so - he actually lives on the next island and rents the fields of a farm on "our" island.

Rick- at least your plant above had lots of offsets, so flowers or not, it should be good still :) I've had S ciliosum produce a lot of flowering stems, including some small ones like that, but can't say I looked closely enough to know whether they were from the same or multiple rosettes. The overall growth was so dense (packed in between rocks and pot edge) that the heavy flowering and subsequent rosette death,  made little impact on the clump overall! I do have pieces of that clump in ground now (actually now it all is, the pot was disassembled, but that main chunk is still establishing) and initially they send out rosettes (still talking about ciliosum here) on longish -couple of inches from parent- surface stolons.. I guess it will start getting packed in when the open space between rocks is exhausted..

Here are a couple of views of plants just recently out of the snow-off and on!

Jovibarbas have to be some of the toughest plants in the rock garden re: low temps- I see some of them looking alert almost as soon as the snow is off, when nights are well below freezing still, and some of the days not much better.. this is a no-name plant, prob a J globifera form, in ground, then a potful of extra Jovis..
