Sempervivum, also known as Hens and Chicks, has dense rosettes of succulent, fleshy leaves. Hens and Chicks come in a variety of colors ranging from greens to deep purples. Sempervivum is drought tolerant, evergreen and deer resistant. This perennial performs well in rock gardens, containers and strawberry pots. It prefers full to part sun and sharply well-drained soil. After flowering, the larger mother plant dies to make room for her surrounding offsets or chicks. Hardy to zones 4-9.
