Hen and Chicks
When we say hen and chicks, we aren’t talking about the farm animals that produce eggs. We are talking about the alpine plant belonging to the Sempervivum family of succulents. These little gems are evergreen perennials that have an incredible tolerance for poor soils and challenging conditions. The most important requirement for hen and chicks is good drainage. They are drought tolerant and do not like to be over-watered. Let the soil dry out between watering’s. Best grown in full sun to part shade, hen and chicks can be grown in zones 3-9. They require very little soil, making them ideal for growing in small crevasses and rock gardens or even in a container for the deck, patio or indoor tabletop in a bright location. Garden Crossings carries a colorful array of hen and chicks. Start collecting your flock today!
