Sempervivum (Hens and Chicks)

Category:

Description

A large rosette called the “hen” sprouts smaller rosettes called “chicks”. As the plants age, the “hen” may die out and be replaced by the “chicks”. Plants can be easily divided at any time by pulling up some of the “chicks” and replanting them. Hens and Chicks are tough and adaptable. They thrive in difficult locations as long as they have good drainage.
