SEMPERVIVUM hybrid ‘Green Wheels’

Hens & Chicks –

0527Among the easiest plants to grow, Hen-and-chicks tolerate heat, drought and neglect with style. 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 bright-green forming a dense carpet.. 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.

Companion Plants
Yarrow – Woolly yarrow enjoys similar conditions to hens-and-chicks. Its low mats of deeply cut leaves covered in silvery hairs and small heads of yellow spring flowers make them fine companions.
Thrift – With tight mounds of grassy blue gray leaves, thrift contrasts well with hens-and-chicks in sunny places. The heads of white, pink, or red flowers in late spring are a bonus.
Sedum – Groundcover sedum selections also love a hot, dry spot and offer a variety of textures that complement or contrast hens-and-chicks.
