Sempervivum 'Rocknoll Rosette'

Common Name: Hen & Chicks, Houseleek

This colorful selection produces medium sized rosettes of deep orange to wine red leaves flushed apple green at the base.  It offsets freely, making it an ideal small scale groundcover for sunny, dry areas. 

Sempervivum is comprised of one large rosette called the "hen" which sprouts many smaller rosettes around it called "chicks". As the plants age, the "hen" may die out and be replaced by the "chicks". Plants can be divided easily at any time by pulling up some of the "chicks" and replanting them elsewhere.

This plant is particularly effective when planted in the cracks and crevices of stone walls or walkways. It is also very attractive in containers.
