Chick Charms® Appletini™: A strong grower with a distinctive look. The apple green of the rosette center contrasts well with its near-black tips. Its leaves tend to be long, narrow, and upright pointing. This sturdy grower can develop into a sizable clump over time. Also known as Sempervivum 'Reinhardt'. Sold in single container.
Hens & Chicks need plenty of outdoor sunlight to show their best colors and maintain a tight rosette form. They thrive in gritty, well-draining soils and pots with drainage holes. They produce new offsets or "chicks" on stolons. These chicks can be left to form tidy clusters or removed to share and transplant.
Sempervivum do most of their growing in the spring and summer, and will thrive with weekly watering and afternoon shade if temperatures exceed 80F. They are incredibly frost hardy and will happily overwinter under an insulating blanket of snow. Protect from heavy rains and standing water to prevent rot.
