Sempervivum Overview:

Sempervivum, or Hens & Chicks grow in a fantastic clump/mat of colorful rosettes. Plants thrive in porous soil with full to part sun. Soil and light conditions can change the look of the varieties drastically. Once established, sempervivum are drought tolerant. As an added benefit, succulents are deer resistant. These plants can survive when grown indoors, but they look their best when grown outside.

  • Wow!! This Limflight is a stunner!! Recieved several weeks ago, planted outside and the colors are gorgeous greens with yellow and orange lower leaves and beautiful red tips. I'll probably order more of them before you sell out.
