Hens and Chicks is a mat-forming evergreen succulent with thick fleshy foliage that grows in rosettes.  The mother rosette (hen) spreads out with horizontal stems to seed offsets (chicks).  In summer a tall stalk rises from the hen sporting clusters of red-purple 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.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.

My order exceeded expectations last summer! Plus everything in pots and in the ground came back bigger and better early this spring.
