A favorite succulent perfect for rock gardens or containers.
Carefree and whimsical, hens and chicks (Sempervivum) plants can handle poor soil and near-drought conditions. Plant these succulents in a container or rock garden, and watch them flourish! Hens and chicks are succulents native to Europe and Northern Africa. They sprout close to the ground and grow out in an eye-catching rosette pattern. As they continue to grow, they "hatch" their chicks: each starts as a flower on the main succulent, or "hen." As the buds grow, they form their own roots and settle next to the mother plant.
