Red Heart Hens and Chicks is a mat-forming evergreen succulent that grows in medium sized rosettes of flat green fleshy foliage with a red center that intensifies and expands in the cool weather of winter and spring.  The mother Rosset(hen) spreads out with horizontal stems to seed offsets (chicks).  Infrequently in summer a short stalk rises from the hen sporting clusters of pastel pink flowers. The hen dies after flowering, giving space for the chicks to grow.  Best color with full sun and dry to medium well-drained soils.  Drought and heat tolerant once established.
