RECOMMENDED PURPOSE
Rock Garden

Hens and Chicks are deer resistant and will attract bees and butterflies. They are great for rock gardens as well as low-growing borders in especially dry areas, such as stone walls or exposed foundations where it is hot and dry. Works wonders in poor, well-drained soils in full sun.

Planted en masse, Sempervivum makes for an interesting landscape feature. Place plants 4-6” apart. Remove spent flower stalks—may take several years to blossom. Each mother plant, or hen, will die off after blooming—remove from garden.

Rarely needs dividing, but can be divided spring-early autumn by detaching chicks from the mother plant.
