Sempervivum 'Peggy' (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: Hen & Chicks, Houseleek
A beautiful variety of Hens & Chicks that transitions through many colors over the seasons. In spring, leaves are purple and transition to deep red in summer. Fall and winter colors are more subdued, ranging from mahogany to brown.
Sempervivum is comprised of one large rosette called the 'hen' which sprouts many smaller rosettes around it called 'chicks'. As the plants age, the 'hen' may die out and be replaced by the 'chicks'. Plants can be divided easily at any time by pulling up some of the 'chicks' and replanting them elsewhere.
This plant is particularly effective when planted in the cracks and crevices of stone walls or walkways. It is also very attractive in containers.
