Black Hens and Chicks - Sempervivum 'Black' ~ Mounding evergreen perennial; excellent planted in mass groupings. Foliage is bright yellow-green with tips edged in purple. Small flower spikes are frosty white. Useful in rocky areas. Grows best in well-drained soil.
Need a quick centerpiece for a patio table? Just show off in a cluster of tightly packed rosettes of hen and chicks (Sempervivum tectorum) in small pots. The plant in the foreground grows in just enough soil to fill a 4-inch nursery pot, with small stones packed around it. The plants get a little gentle irrigation in the summer.

Teapot succulent planter - Found this teapot at a garage sale and planted some hens & chicks along with some Athoum sedum. I attached the plastic crystals to the inside of the pot by attaching the string with outdoor silicone. After watering, the excess water runs out the spout, so no need for drainage holes. DML 5/2014
framed hen and chicks plants I love these plants - I remember one that sat in the kitchen window when I was growing up. It has almost dies several times, but it is still the first plant I look for whenever I visit my mom.
