Sempervivum 'Black' Hens & Chicks
Winter Hardy
Mounding succulent perennial makes an excellent ground cover when planted in mass groupings. Foliage is an attractive bright green with tips edged in purple. Small flower spikes are frosty white. Thrives in lean, gravelly or rocky soils. Perfect for a container or trough garden. Works in small spaces; tuck among rockery or along pathways. Evergreen in mild winter areas.
Hens & Chicks need plenty of outdoor sunlight to show their best colors and maintain a tight rosette form. They thrive in gritty, well-draining soils and pots with drainage holes. They produce new offsets or "chicks" on stolons.
