Sunset Hens & Chicks

Description
A classic succulent, Sunset Hens & Chicks offers a gorgeous combination of emerald green and red rosettes. For years, gardeners have treasured Hens & Chicks for their easy care and eye-catching rosettes that multiply every year. The larger rosettes are called the hens while the smaller rosettes are the chicks. These drought-tolerant , winter-hardy perennials provide year-round interest when grown as a ground cover in rock gardens or planted in the fronts of sunny borders. They also add charm to terra-cotta pots and other patio containers. These easy-care succulents are also a great plant to give to beginning or novice gardeners. Sempervivum 'Sunset'

When the plant arrived it had fallen out of the container but was still within the packaging. The center of the hen looked rotted. After planting, the remainder of the hen died and three chicks sprouted. They seem to be doing okay.
