    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.
