Moss Rose Hens and Chicks

Description

No matter where you live, you can enjoy this unique and carefree plant. With a new color combination that pairs light green foliage with deep red rosettes, it's sure to attract attention to rock gardens, containers or anywhere you want a one-of-a-kind ground cover. Naturalizes like a dream, increasing in strength, vigor and spread year after year. This fast-growing perennial does best in full sun to partial shade, is heat and drought tolerant, deer resistant, and withstands neglect like a champ. Grows 6-8" tall with a 6-12" spread. Zones 2-9. Sempervivum 'Moss Rose'

Distinctive in form and habit, Hens and Chicks (otherwise known as sempervivum) is a colorful and hardy perennial that hugs the ground and produces unique tropical-looking plants that are just as at home in zone 2 as in zone 9. Available in many color combinations, but they are all easy to grow and maintain. Drought tolerant and heat resistant.

Useful in rock gardens, container garden of all types, rooftop gardens and rock walls. Hundreds of varieties exist. All types form a low cushion or carpet of fleshy leaves, tiny new plants appearing in a circle around the mother in the middle. This selection has medium-large pointy rosettes of light green covered in fine, soft hairs. Short spikes of pastel flowers appear in summer. Easily increased by just removing the small baby rosettes and replanting in a new location at almost any time. After flowering, the mother rosette dies to leave room for the chicks: remove this by tugging gently at the base of the bloom stem.
