No other sun-loving perennials deliver as much charm, delight and whimsy as Hens and Chicks. These classic, drought-tolerant perennials add color and texture to containers, rock gardens and front borders. The distinctive rosettes have made Hens & Chicks a classic in gardens and containers. The larger rosettes are called the "hens" while the smaller rosettes are the "chicks." The rosettes grow and multiply, spilling over edges of containers or rock edges. Water-sipping succulents, Hens and Chicks are winter hardy, even in cooler climates. Because their foliage varies with each variety, it's fun to mix and match them for a wonderful display of color and texture.
