Additional Information About Carmen Hen and Chicks

Carmen Hens And Chicks is a moderate growing perennial plant and succulent plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 3A through 11. It matures to an average height of 1 inch to 1 foot and an average width of 6 inches to 1 foot, depending on climate and other environmental factors. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun and grows best when planted in sand or loam soil that is well drained. In the summer Carmen Hens And Chicks produces pink flowers. The foliage is red, purple and medium green in color. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer, drought, insects, mildew and heat.

Carmen Hens And Chicks can be useful in the landscape in mass plantings, in containers or planters, as a border or edger, around decks, swimming pools, and other outdoor living areas, as an accent, as a groundcover, in landscape beds or islands or in small groupings and also in rock or xeriscape gardens, theme gardens or perennial gardens.


More About Carmen Hen And Chicks...

Carmen Hens And Chicks's attractive succulent pointy leaves are green in color with prominent dark red tips. As an added bonus, the foliage turns a gorgeous deep purple in the fall. It features unusual clusters of pink star-shaped flowers with dark red bracts rising above the foliage in mid summer. The brick red stems can be quite attractive.

Hen and Chicks are perfect for planting around rocks and boulders in rock gardens and garden ponds, container garden of all types, rooftop gardens and rock walls. 

Very easy to grow, Hen and Chicks prefer a very well-drained, sandy or rocky soil and full sun to part shade. Constantly soggy or wet soils are problematic.

Hen and Chicks are very low maintenance, drought tolerant plants that require no fertilization. After flowering, the mother rosette dies to leave room for the chicks: remove this by tugging gently at the base of the bloom stem. Plants are not bothered by deer and have no serious insect or disease problems.
