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. fThe rosettes are most striking in the spring and summer but even in the winter when growth stops, many varieties remain attractively coloured. It is the endless range of different leaf shapes, colours and textures that make this group so interesting to enthusiasts.
Sunlight brings out bright colors in Sempervivums. When planted in full shade or grown indoors away from a sunny window, many varieties tend to fade to a plain green color. However, in hotter weather during the summer and in the southern United States, afternoon shade can actually help plant colors last longer. The soil’s fertility, pH, moisture and structure, as well as the temperature and age of the plant (some take up to three years for full color) also effect coloration.
Indoors, Hens & Chicks should be grown in a sunny window and watered when dry.

It's really quite tiny. I wish they'd send them a bit bigger. About and inch and a half across but looking healthy. A nice sized mini cactus with multiple limbs. Very pleased! Perfectly packed and arrived in excellent condition. Sending them in pots rather than bare root makes all the difference plus the prices are same as other growers that send plants with scant soil. I love this grower and plan to purchase again.
