Hens & Chicks (16)

Deliver personality and pizzazz to your garden with enchanting hens and chicks (Sempervivum). Low growing, lovely rosettes cluster around a parent plant like a brood of chicks round a hen. Their plump, fleshy leaves come in charming shades of green, pink, purple and blue. These plants add texture, character and colour to almost any indoor or outdoor setting. They multiply readily and are easily divided; a chick may simply be broken off and placed in new soil, where it will sprout roots and produce a brood of its own. Hens and chicks flowers appear in summer, when a hen plant produces a spike with a lovely cluster of blooms at its tip.

Hens and chicks are resistant to deer and drought and are tolerant of neglect. During the winter, they may be left outside or brought indoors in containers as attractive houseplants. Hens and chicks plants make excellent ground cover, and, when placed on a berm or slope, they establish quickly and discourage erosion. These easy-care plants add colour and form to rock and succulent gardens and container plantings. They also bring life to otherwise barren spots; they can be tucked into small pockets of soil in rock walls or gravelled areas.

Those who like bolder colours might favour Mexican hens and chicks. These striking, fanciful plants come in particularly vivid colours, such as electric blue leaves edged in hot pink, or sparkling chartreuse fading into splendid midnight blue. Choose your favorite variety and perk up your home or garden with the personality and charm of these endearing favorites.

    Hens & Chicks Collection
    Hens & Chicks Collection
    These "Always Living" Plants Thrive Indoors or Out! Hens & Chicks provide year-round beauty to both your garden and your home. Extremely hardy and easy to grow, these colourful succulents won't lose their leaves in winter, so you can bring them inside for a lovely off-season houseplant, or just leave them in the ground—they are tough and winter hardy in zones 3-8! Even in heat, drought and poor soil, Hens & Chicks require very little water and minimum maintenance. For best performance and colour, all they need is plenty of sunshine. Abundant Colour and Texture for Mixed Containers, Ground Covers and More Hens & Chicks (Sempervivum) are quite versatile and spread quickly, filling in rock gardens or edging along walkways. The main rosettes, known as the "hens," produce smaller rosettes, or "chicks." Because of their short roots, your Hens and Chicks will arrive in shallow pots, with one hen and 2-3 chicks each. Be sure to replant them in the ground or another pot as soon as possible. You can "pick a chick" at any time to plant in additional locations. Just stick the rosette in the ground and watch it take off! This collection includes 1 each of the following varieties: Rita Jane: Jumbo-size, rosettes reach 5" across at maturity! Grey-green foliage has a rosy base and matching red leaf tips. Grows 4-6" tall. Emerald Empress: Deep silvery green rosettes get a bronze tint in cooler months. Short spikes of pastel flowers appear in early to late summer. Grows 2-4" tall. Green Wheels: Layer after layer of apple green leaves form a dense carpet of medium-to-large, pointy rosettes. Early summer brings plenty of pink, bell-shaped flowers. Grows 6" tall. Red Rubin: Delightfully different! Burgundy rosettes have a hint of green peeking out from the tightly packed leaves. Grows 4-6" tall. Spumanti: Small rosettes feature fine, silvery hairs that join together like a spider web among bright green, succulent foliage. Pink, bell-shaped flowers bloom in early to late summer. Grows 4" tall. more
