Hens and Chicks is a mat-forming evergreen succulent with thick fleshy foliage that grows in rosettes.  The mother rosette (hen) spreads out with horizontal stems to seed offsets (chicks).  In summer a tall stalk rises from the hen sporting clusters of red-purple flowers.  The hen dies after flowering, giving space for the chicks to grow.  Best color with full sun and dry to medium well-drained soils.  Drought and heat tolerant once established.

There isn’t much known about the Green variety, so if you try it tell us what you think!
