Braunii Hens And Chicks

Description
This unique, drought tolerant, very hardy plant thrives in full sun with almost no maintenance! Rosettes of succulent leaves, 2" wide, have small dark green leaves covered with fine white hairs, and pointed tips sometimes flushed with red. These rosettes form and spread by offsets from the base of a larger rosette. The base plants are the hens, and the offsets are the chicks. Excellent plant for rock gardens, crevices in rock walls, decorative containers, and as ground cover in sunny gardens. They can also be used as colorful, low maintenance houseplants, grown by themselves, or used as filler plants in mixed containers with other houseplants that tolerate dry conditions. Since they don't need much water, they are a great choice to add texture and color to vertical gardens. It is said a rosette will die after it blooms, but it isn't very noticeable because new rosettes are already forming around it. When plants start outgrowing their space, offsets can easily be transplanted to a new area, and will quickly establish themselves if placed in well-drained soil. Sempervivum may be used as a uniquely beautiful and environmentally friendly way to roof a building. A green roof can improve water and air quality, reduce cooling needs in summer, and provide additional insulation in winter.

Other Notes:

We aim for your order to be in your hands at the ideal time to plant, every time. Our growers must anticipate their supply based on the season they expect. Our experts predict weather patterns as best they can to set suitable shipping windows for each growing zone. However, as any gardener knows, nature is not so predictable. The type of product you order, along with the weather in your area or ours, may affect the anticipated shipping schedule.

Based on the contents of your order, we always strive to ship the order complete and as early as possible. However, sometimes this may result in a delay of some items that are ready before others. Our customers have suggested that they would rather wait to receive their order as complete as possible. If you would like to receive part of your order ahead of time, please reach out to our customer service department and we can accommodate. Orders with large items may be shipped in more than one package. There is no extra charge if your order requires more than one package.

Bareroot perennials, trees and shrubs are kept in the nursery row until fully dormant. This promotes optimum transit conditions and provides your new plant with the best opportunity for success in your garden.

Trees and other oversize items cannot be shipped to PO boxes.

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with the details of your order and a delivery estimate. You will also receive an email notification when your order ships with an updated arrival estimate and tracking information.

At any time after you place your order you can check your order status on our website using your email or the account number found in your order confirmation email.

Please note that we cannot ship outside of the 48 contiguous states.
