Sempervivum ‘Black’ is an historic garden plant with succulent foliage. Forms rosettes of bright yellow-green foliage with tips edged in purple. Displays small, frosty white flower spikes.

What are Sempervivum? Sempervivum means “always alive”. They are commonly called Hens & Chicks as the Mother, or Hen will send out Babies, or Chicks to quickly multiply and create a beautiful patch of succulent bliss. Sempervivum are monocarpic and will expire after blooming, although the Chicks will quickly fill in the space left by the Mother. These plants are almost always changing color, so don’t be surprised if they look completely different through the seasons.

Where do they thrive? Hens & Chicks grow best in well-drained, gravelly soil that is not wet in winter. ‘Wet feet’ may cause the plant to rot. They are drought tolerant once established. Great in containers and rock gardens, including small crevices or spaces with limited soil.
