Sempervivum Chick Charms Silver Suede is such an attractive succulent with a frosting on the leaves that radiate from red to green forming the classic rosette. This “hens and chicks” variety is quick to form offsets, attached to the mother by a short side stem above the soil. This gives an enchanting appearance to the plant, and the suspended “chicks” can soften the edge of a container, or even trail a bit over the side. These offsets can be snipped and rooted elsewhere to propogate the plant. In time, like other
Sempervivum, the primary rosette – the “hen” will die back, allowing one or more of the “chicks” to root in and flourish.
Happy indoors or out, in sun or shade, this is a beautiful, versatile member of the succulents family. Be stingy with the water and enjoy!
