Hens and Chicks Details

Hens and Chicks are minuscule succulents that draws huge attention to itself because the foliage grows in a shape that resembles a fully-bloomed rose. These beautiful plants are also super resilient to most forces of nature it might encounter from Houston, Texas to Hollywood, California.

They can grow from 4 to 8 inches in diameter with leaves that offer a glossy, smooth look and pinkish edges. The foliage can grow up to 6 inches tall. Hens and Chicks also provide your yard with blooming flowers that come in spring and early summer. These flowers can emerge in yellow or red!

This succulent can handle full sun exposure but does best with some shade in the day, especially in regions that get temperatures above 90° Fahrenheit. Once established, this plant can be watered deeply as little as 1-2 times a month all year long.

They are also extremely easy to maintain – a perfect starter plant for beginner gardeners! More advanced gardeners will love to utilize Hens and Chicks into existing landscapes for some truly unique designs.
