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.

  • Wonderfully surprised as I tipped the bag and all these dark red balls fell into my hand. A beautiful adorable plant. Can't say much else about it as it lives outside in the freezing temps and has stayed closed up. Tough little plant

    I wish I knew about Young's last year. No one gives out the number of plants per order like they do and the prices are crazy inexpensive. Especially like the 2 day shipping and cannot wait to see new semps for spring
