Out of Season Silverine Hens & Chicks

Silverine Hens & Chicks


This succulent has silvery green foliage flushed with reddish-purple at the base. Its small rosettes continually multiply until you have an area in your landscape or container spilling over with color and texture. The parent rosettes are the "hens" and the smaller rosettes that spring up from them are the "chicks." In midsummer, purple to reddish-pink flowers appear on hairy stems up to 12" tall. Easy to grow, even in poor soil, space 12" apart.
