Sempervivum, known as Hens and Chicks is a cinch to grow and propagate and actually quite fun to decorate pots, old tea kettles, in old boots or shoes, and in living wreaths. The primary rosette, the “hen” produces many little offsets, the “chicks”, which can easily be pulled away from the mother and rooted elsewhere. Eventually the “hen” will die back enabling the “chicks” to fill in and root in its place while carrying on for many years and producing their own offsets. These varieties are soft, smooth and have color changing, succulent, evergreen foliage and are so easy to plant and grow. Tough, cute, drought tolerant and maintenance free at the same time, these Hens and Chicks tolerate heat and neglect with style, and are winter-hardy to minus 25F.
