This mat-forming succulent can grow in zones 3 through 8 and will continue to expand year after year. Plant hens and chicks near the front of a mass planting, along walkways, or tucked into stone walls to ensure the plants stand out.

Chick Charms® Strawberry Kiwi Hens & Chicks Care
Hens and chicks grow in full sun to partial shade. These plants thrive in well-drained, poor-quality soil. Hens and chicks have shallow root systems, allowing them to grow in rock gardens or areas with limited soil. Sempervivum is drought tolerant and can sustain itself with rainwater. Only water during an extended dry spell.
Cut back the flower stalks when the blooms fade, and remove dead or damaged growth as necessary. Chick Charms® Strawberry Kiwi Hens & Chicks are cold hardy and can survive cold winter temperatures, but they need protection from extended wet periods and poor drainage in winter.
