Growing & Maintenance:
Sempervivum grows best in well-drained soils. Loosen soil and incorporate an organic soil conditioner according to directions. Dig hole twice the width of container and a depth slightly less than the height of soil in container. Allow top surface of the container soil to rest slightly higher than the prepared soil. Water only to prevent shriveling. Easily increased by removing the small baby rosettes and replanting in a new location at almost any time.
Red Rubin Hens & Chicks
Sempervivum x 'Red Rubin'
Plant Type: Ground Covers
This selection has large rosettes of emerald green, with distinctive burgundy-red leaf tips. Mother rosettes (hens) produce new plantlets (chicks). Short spikes of pastel flowers appear on mother rosettes in summer; as flowers fade, mother rosettes die and are replaced by the chicks.
