This durable, small succulent is the perfect choice for a container or rock garden. This drought tolerant perennial grows to be about 1-3” tall, forming unique rosettes that are sure to become a conversation starter. Magenta blooms form in the summer months and this easy-care perennial thrives in full sun to partial shade. Also known as Hens and Chicks, we recommend planting as many of these in the garden as possible; they’ll quickly become one of your favorites for filling in bare spots with texture and color.

About the Sedums: These perennial plants enjoy gritty, fast-draining soil, and must have full hot sun. They're really desert plants, so give them sharp drainage. (Sedums are often called Succulents, due to their thickened moisture-retentive leaves, and yes, the short ones include the famous Hen and Chicks from grandmothers garden.)

Once Sedums are established, you've assured yourself of loads of perennial interest for the later months when most garden flowers are gone.
