Hens and chicks plants are mat-forming succulents that produce clusters of rosettes. The parent rosettes are the “hens,” and the smaller rosettes that spring from them are the “chicks” or “chickens.” This low-growing (4 inches tall) perennial will quickly spread to 2 feet or more in width (through propagation or self-propagation; see below). Although grown for its foliage, hens and chicks do sometimes flower, on a tall (1 foot) flower stalk. The foliage of hens and chicks plants is most typically red, green, blue, golden, coppery, or some mixture thereof.
