An unusual colour - a sort of amber-yellow with reddened tips. It forms bold mounds of fairly large rosettes with stout, broad leaves with a velvety texture. It's a vigorous plant, the daughter rosettes borne on long shoots.
'Alchimist' really shines in a group of houseleeks, contrasting well with all the red or green varieties.
