6 Pack of Bare Root Sempervivum: Each order includes six colorful, bare root mother "hens" (at least 3.0" in diameter) and two or more offsets or "chicks". Picked fresh and carefully wrapped for shipping. Plant names included.
PLEASE NOTE: Bare root plants are NOT guaranteed to re-root and some outer leaves will dry while it transitions. For best results, plant outdoors but protect from full sun, high heat, and extended drought until the rosettes feel firmly rooted in the ground.
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.
