FunkyJan's Sempervivum tectorum 'hens & chicks' x 6 Planting Out

Plant: Common houseleek (Sempervivum tectorum) |

I’d been looking all last year for this plant. It was very hard to come by for some reason. Either I didn’t have the monies to spend on them when they were in the stores, or they just weren’t in the stores when I did have the monies. I have the cobweb type of hens and chicks and also the red variety, but now I finally have this one too. I consider it the classic hens & chicks since it’s just plain green with nothing else special going on with it. Not only do I have just one, but I got myself a 6 pack! =D

I plan to plant these cuties everywhere. Some are going in pots and some in the succulent garden. I might even give some away if I can part with them. =P
