Accepted natural species


For a future exhibition at Munich-Nymphenburg Botanical Garden in 2026, to celebrate the garden’s Alpine garden on the Schachen 125 anniversary, I am painting the 51 accepted natural species of Sempervivum. My objective is to draw the defining characteristics between each species native to the mountain ranges of Europe, the Moroccan Atlas, the center of the Alborz Mountains in Iran, and the South of the Caspian Sea.
