The Giants line of Chick Charms® Sempervivum may be the largest Hen and Chicks you’ve ever seen. The mature hen makes a dramatic statement when planted singly in a shallow bowl or pot. Copper Canyon is evergreen and sports deep jade green leaves that progress to a deep coppery red at the margins. Sempervivum is one of the easiest succulents to grow and is fully winter hardy in USDA zones 3-8. Flower stalks appear throughout the summer along with the offset plants, called chicks. 

Chick Charms® Hen and Chicks are fully winter hardy, evergreen in all growing zones, and perfect for growing in a rock garden. They also work well at the edge of a sunny border or in a container that can be moved to decorate areas as needed. Deer and rabbits are rarely a problem for hens and chicks. Sempervivum is exceptionally drought tolerant and requires little supplemental watering when established in a garden bed. 

Chick Charms® Giant Copper Canyon Hens and Chicks Care

Copper Canyon Hens and Chicks grow best with well-draining soil and full sun exposure. Shade during the early morning or late afternoon is acceptable, although shadier spots all day long may stunt growth and blooming. Hens and chicks grow well in shallow rocky spots or saucer-like containers. 

No pruning is required for Copper Canyon Hens and Chicks. You can remove the spent flower spikes to tidy up the plant. As the chicks form, they can be left attached to the mother to expand the planting area. Alternatively, the chicks can be transplanted once they reach an easy-to-handle size.  

Spring clean-up of any winter-damaged leaves helps to keep plants healthy and less likely to be attacked by pests or diseases. Use sharp pruning tools to make a clean cut that heals well. In dry climates, mist plants with water once a week to protect against spider mites and mealybugs.

Chick Charms® Giant Copper Canyon Hens and Chicks Spacing

Giant Copper Canyon Hens and Chicks reach 10 inches wide when fully mature. Space plants 10 inches apart to create a dense ground cover. Place plants farther apart to highlight the overall form and size. Choose a shallow bowl or pot that has at least an 8-inch opening when growing this succulent in a container.

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.

Guarantee and Warranty

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.

Summer

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!

Winter

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.
