Description:

Sempervivum 'Amanda' is a lovely Hens & Chicks cultivar from the UK. It is a hybrid of S. 'Atropurpureum' x S. calcareum 'Mrs. Giuseppe. This medium-sized rosette grows well outdoors and transitions between olive green and deep burgundy throughout the seasons. The waxy coating on its leaves helps it survive extended droughts, but it also makes for attractive striations or "watermarks".


Specifications:

  • Colors: Green/Red

Seasonal Notes:

Sempervivum does most of its growing in the spring and summer and will thrive with weekly watering. They are incredibly frost-hardy and will happily overwinter under a blanket of snow.


Shipping:

Well-rooted plant growing and shipped in a 4" pot! Some soil may be removed for shipping.


Care:

Hens & Chicks need plenty of outdoor sunlight to show their best colors and maintain a tight rosette form. They thrive in gritty, well-draining soils and pots with drainage holes. They produce new offsets or "chicks" on stolons. These chicks can be left to form tidy clusters or removed to share and transplant.
