Also known as Jovibarba hirta, Sempervivum globiferum subs. hirtum is a rosette succulent usually known as the Hairy Houseleek. It is recognized by generally bordered leaves and blooms. The blooming is in summer. The blossoms are yellowish, nearly ringer molded, shaping a thick corymb, on stems 15-20 cm high. The sepals of it have ordinary hairs. The petals are increasingly erect and restricted spear formed. It is practically obtuse, with a long periphery (glandular-pubescent) on their edge, emphatically incurved. The rosettes are mostly open with a width of 2.5- 5cm.
The counterbalances are globular and emerge out of the lower leaves just on stems which are meager and transitory. The leaves are thick, plump, elliptical lanceolate to broadly ovate in structure. The leaves are spreading, acute, amplest at or beneath the center, patent or erect, about twice as long, 15-20 (- 30) x 5-7 mm as they are wide, emphatically bordered, uniform greenish with a dim puina, at some point with red or ruddy dark colored tips, minimal cilia solid, spreading, white, meet long. In the event that the plants are dried, the leaves are rolled; if not, they spread out.
