This succulent reaches up to 10 inches across at maturity, giving it a dramatic look that is perfect in minimalist garden plans or as part of a specialty rock garden display.  The deep maroon coloring of the petals gets more dramatic as the temperatures fall and remains vibrant in full sun or part shade. 

Low-maintenance plants are perfect for gardeners short on time or experience. Chicks Charms® Maroon Mountain Hens and Chicks has virtually no upkeep required after the initial planting. This is the ultimate “plant and go” perennial. Use this Chicks Charms® to fill in around the edge of a dry garden border, create an intriguing rock garden display, or enliven a container to decorate a seating area with fabulous color and form. 

Chick Charms® Giant Maroon Mountain Hen and Chicks Care

Hens and Chicks are tough and hardy, and tolerate a wide range of soil textures and fertility levels. The best planting locations have well-draining soil, full sun exposure, and sandy to loamy soil. Provide supplemental watering only during long periods of drought or heat, and mulch the soil with pea gravel or loose arborist chips. Container-grown Hens and Chicks will tolerate some shade as long as they receive at least 4 hours of direct sun each day. 

Pruning and deadheading are not required to keep Hens and Chicks tidy and compact. Chicks (pups or plantlets) grow around the edges of the mother plant and can be removed and transplanted once they reach a couple of inches across. Alternatively, leave the chicks in place to root and fill in open spaces between plants. 

Hens and Chicks do not require extra protection during the winter months. In fact, the cold weather helps to keep the deep maroon coloring vibrant. Container-grown plants may need to be moved if drainage becomes poor in the winter. Plants sitting in water for long periods become susceptible to root rot and should be moved to a dry location. 

Chick Charms® Giant Maroon Mountain Hen and Chicks Spacing

Chick Charms® Hen and Chicks are perfect for growing in containers of all sorts. The mature size of the mother plant is about 10 inches across. Use pots or shallow dishes that have excellent drainage and a diameter of at least 8 inches for single plants. Space plants 10 inches apart when planting in a garden bed or in a large planter.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
