Chick Charms® Strawberry Kiwi™ (also known as Sempervivum 'Fashion Diva') (Vaughn): A bright red rosette with tawny green to yellow accents in some seasons. It can show captivating "watermarks" or wavy lines of natural wax that help the plant tolerate direct sun. In the winter, its colors deepen to a dusty mauve. 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.
