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

This sempervivum has intense coloring year round depending on your growing conditions. Strong grower, seems to be immune to months of winter/spring rain and scorching summer drought in my Pacific Northwest garden.
This plant can be found in our Plant Database at:
Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Round Midnight') .

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



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

This has been a very good plant for me. Vigorous and good color retention.

Good work Don!
