Chick Charms® Berry Blues™ (Sempervivum 'Pacific Blue Ice') (Gosset): A stunning silvery blue cultivar that can flush pink to purple. It is a medium to large rosette with short cilia lining its leaves and rippling watermarks. This variety is a solid, easy grower. 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.
