Today's plant of the day for Sempervivum is Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Rubrum').

Want a tiny semp? This one is very tiny sempervivum. You can look at the other photos in the database and see the rosette size compared to the chicken grit that is used as a ground cover/mulch.
This plant can be found in our Plant Database at:
Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Rubrum') .

Also, please consider adding a Plant Performance Report to the database! Thank you!

Lynn, if I hadn't been pushing your chx grit around with my fingers a few weeks back I wouldn't have believed how small that semp is. I'll have to run out and see if I can get a picture of what's left of Rubrum.

It has a very neat and tidy small bloom stalk, the flowers are vivid in color. Another thing to like about this semp.
