Soft grey-green fleshy leaves grow quickly in clumping rosettes up to 24 wide. Great for rock gardens containers. Once established require little water. As with all sempervivum the larger center rosette the ‘hen’ sprouts smaller rosettes called the’chicks’. Over time the center rosette can die leaving the smaller ‘chicks’ to continue growing.
