Chick Charms® Cosmic Candy™ (also known as Sempervivum 'Urmina') (Smits): A sweet rose to green rosette that can take on golden tinges in bright sun. A thick tufting of fine, white cilia give this cultivar an adorably fuzzy appearance. This is a reliable grower that produces lots of chicks each spring. 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.
