Sempervivum ‘Jubilee’


Hen-and-chicks

USDA Zone: 2-9

Plant number: 1.490.030


Among the easiest plants to grow, Hen-and-chicks tolerate heat, drought and neglect with style. Useful in rock gardens, container gardens of all types, rooftop gardens and rock walls. Hundreds of varieties exist. All types form a low cushion or carpet of fleshy leaves, tiny new plants appearing in a circle around the mother in the middle. This selection has a round, symetrical shape with hairy, light silver-green leaves that age to burgundy late in the season. Unusual clusters of star-shaped pink flowers appear late summer lasting into the fall. Easily increased by just removing the small baby rosettes and replanting in a new location at almost any time. After flowering, the mother rosette dies to leave room for the chicks: remove this by tugging gently at the base of the bloom stem.
