Black Hen and Chicks AKA Houseleeks


Sempervivum “Black” is more brown, but in more sun will get darker and look almost black, in the same way that my brown hair looks black. But is still brown.

Loves the rocky rock gardens, hardy down to 10F or a little below with some snow cover. Rosettes get about 6″ across with root run. Flowers are those little 5-pointed stars so beloved of plants in the Crassula Family (Crassulaceae). And… they’re white!

Sempervivum means “Live Forever” since they send out lots of chicks and the grouping can keep surviving long after the mother plant has died.
