Hens & Chicks (Sempervivum species) :Sempervivum are succulent, rosette forming plants belonging to the Crassulaceae family. They are commonly known as Hens & Chicks, Houseleeks or Hen and Chickens. The main attraction of these plants is their colourful rosettes of leaves. These range from bright yellow, through various shades of green, grey, pink, purple, red, orange and brown, to almost black in some varieties. The leaves may be dull or glossy, or covered with soft down or longer hairs. Small silvery hairs are commonly found along the leaf margins and in many varieties the leaf tips bear a tuft of longer hairs that can form a “cobweb” over the surface of the rosettes. Leaf shape can also vary from short, succulent, almost round leaves to long, tapering, finely pointed ones. ::Hens & Chicks can be grown in pots, planted out in rockeries, walls, sink gardens and flower beds where they will soon develop into attractive cushions of rosettes. Sempervivums will grow in almost any type of soil provided that it is well drained and in a sunny position. Although hens & chicks grow naturally in poor soil most plants seem to grow best in a compost that contains plenty of nutrients. They can be given an occasional liquid feed with a general purpose fertiliser but best results are probably obtained by adding slow release fertiliser granules to the compost at the rate recommended for alpine plants. A top dressing of horticultural grit around the neck of each plant provides an attractive background and prevents the plant from being splashed with mud during heavy rain. ::Hardiness Zone: 4-8
