Today's Hen and Chicks of the Day is Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Killer')

Sempervivum 'Killer' was bred by Volkmar Schara and was introduced in 2004. This sempervivum has the added bonus of having beautiful year round intense color. It also has the added distinction of being a genetically strong parent of new sempervivum.

Please join in, if you own this plant! We would love to know more!



Also, please consider adding a "Local Report" to the ATP Plant Database! Thank you!

Killer is stunning and produces many chicks. Funny no pictures of it and it raining. May be later today.
