    It sounds like one of these:  "Oh dear, you're the third person that's asked for that today, but we don't stock it.  It's just not popular enough, you see!"

    As I said on the other thread, if you'd like some cuttings, send me your address.  But if I'm flooded with requests, I might have to ration them.

    I've just had to dig some out of an area that had become horribly weed infested. Of course I had to attempt to take some cuttings. The material wasn't the best so I used my new technique of soaking material in a dish of water overnight before planting them in a tray of compost. I do hope they take they're such a reminder of Grandparents borders, and I love the "fairy" flowers. 
    My soaking technique developed when I refound several pots of named sempervivums that had utterly dried out. I scrapped off with my nail all the dead bits and then plumped them up....very successful strike rate

    From our experience it's difficult to abuse.  We once had a rockery that's now a London Pridery.  Just pull a handful with a bit of root and it'll transplant OK.

    My neighbour just cleared a load of it from a border. It's almost an invasive weed here.
    As said - just pull bits off and plant. Almost impossible for it not to grow.
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
