Another variety that is so well named, it would be easy to imagine little Semp rosettes having their hair washed! Intensely silver-haired in summer from the deep cobwebbing. Small rosettes but grows well to make tight cushions. Wonderful pink flowers too - superb!
Most of the S. arachnoideum (cobweb types, which this is) take on red tones as new growth starts in spring - 'Shampoo' doesn't, she stays silver over the palest of green bases. When I look down the bench full of all our different varieties, Shampoo in early April is one which stands out the most - it's not red, it's not green, it's silver! Highly recommended.
