Chick Charms® Gold Crown Sempervivum is an eye-catching perennial succulent that will add year-round color to your garden! Its unique fleshy leaves are arranged in a rosette; each leaf is a striking red with golden-yellow tips. Chick Charms® Gold Crown Hens and Chicks multiplies abundantly, producing a mat of smaller rosettes around the main plant. It can grow interesting cymes of salmon-colored flowers held above the rosettes in summer.

Chick Charms® Gold Crown Hens and Chicks will form a low-growing, evergreen ground cover in conditions where most other plants fail to grow. It makes an excellent specimen plant for rock gardens, where it can grow in tight spaces between rocks. This low-maintenance perennial is perfect for growing in shallow containers on patios and decks. Its fiery red foliage is a nice contrast to the fleshy green leaves of other succulents in container arrangements. 

Chick Charms® Gold Crown Hens and Chicks Care

Chick Charms® Gold Crown Sempervivum should be planted in full or partial sun. It needs well-drained soil and will flourish in sandy, gravelly, and nutrient-poor soils. Hens and chicks are drought tolerant and do not need much supplemental watering or fertilization. For container planting, a potting soil formulated for succulents works best. 

Because they are monocarpic, Chick Charms® Gold Crown Sempervivum dies after flowering. This is normal, and removing flower stalks as they develop will not prevent the central ‘hen’ from dying. Deadhead once flowering is finished, and carefully remove the dead plant. The offsets will continue to live and propagate themselves after the main plant has flowered and died. 

Since they are shallow rooted, hens and chicks are easy to divide and propagate. Simply pull off an offset by its stem and replant it in a suitable area with room to grow and spread. 

Chick Charms® Gold Crown Hens and Chicks Spacing

Plant Chick Charms® Gold Crown Hens and Chicks 6-12 inches apart so each plant can fill in the space with its offshoots. When growing this succulent in containers, select a pot that is a few inches wider than the diameter of its cluster of rosettes.

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.

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.
