Hens & Chicks (Sempervivum tectorum), also know as houseleeks, are rosette succulent plants native to Europe and Africa. They come in a variety of colours from green, red, purple, or bronze! They are perennial succulents meaning that they can be grown outdoors in your garden! The nick name Hens and Chicks is characterized by their rapid propagation habits. A single plant (hen) has the ability to send out multiple offsets (chicks) at a single time. This makes them fantastic ground coverage plants. If grown indoors, they are a great addition to a succulent arrangement.
These plants are monocarpic. The meaning of monocarpic is single (mono) fruit (carpic) which means each individual plant only blooms once and will die after producing seeds. But not to worry, each single plant produces up to a dozen "chicks" before the end of it's life cycle! Alternatively, some growers will cute off a flower inflorescence before it seeds to extend the plants lifecycle.
Small: 1.5 - 2.5"
Large: 3 - 4"
Plants vary in size and colour. Every plant is unique and therefore may not be exactly as shown. Plants may or may not be in stages of flowering upon arrival.
