(Hens and Chicks)

One of the few sempervivums that thrives in the heat and humidity of the Southeast United States, 'Carmen' forms beautiful evergreen rosettes of succulent lettuce-green, maroon-tipped leaves, which turn purple in winter. Like the hundreds of other hybrid sempervivums, it derives from alpine species native to the mountains of southern Europe and western Asia. The rosettes develop by offsets into crowded, colorful, richly textured mats. In summer the older rosettes send out thick stalks bristling with...

These small clumps of delightful little green rosettes ringed by reddish leaves are among the most charming alpine succulents for home gardens. This variety was derived from Sempervivum tectorum, a native of the mountains of southern Europe. Under alpine conditions soils are quite porous, sun is intense and temperatures low. These plants prefer extreme drainage over soil fertility. In Europe its traditional to grow them on red tile roofs, hence the very old common name, houseleek.

(Hens and Chicks)

This genus of exquisite small succulents contains about 40 species. These resilient, cold-hardy plants exist across the rocky and mountainous regions of Europe and Asia. They naturally inhabit the fissures and crevices of rocky outcrops where their fine roots become firmly anchored and easily obtain available water.

Sempervivum species form fleshy rosettes composed of thick, pointed leaves. The surfaces may be covered with short or long hairs, some are even thread-like. The leaves...

(Hens and Chicks)

Hens and chicks are tough, pretty and perfect for those interested in sustainable gardening. These succulents consist of ground-hugging spiraled rosettes that divide, creating colonies over time. The mother plant almost looks like a hen surrounded by her chicks, hence the common name. The popular selection ‘Green Wheel’ is especially vigorous and pretty. It has densely packed apple green leaves that form remarkably symmetrical rosettes.

In late spring to early summer older rosettes may send...
