Winter Hardy Succulents

Rosularia chrysantha

Hens and Chicks, Houseleeks
Rosettes of soft gray green slightly hairy foliage are produced endlessly on this Sempervivum relative. All it asks is a soil that is quick draining: on top of a retaining wall, in a rockery or alpine trough. It will not grow much more than 3-4 "tall, and will spread along as it has room. As the mother rosette ages, she will begin to set flowers, then go to seed and die. There will be so many babe awaiting to fill in the space you'll never miss her.
