If you've checked out my garden tours, you may have wondered what this section has growing in the side garden.
My mother gave me a plastic grocery sack of hens and chicks one year. They have multiplied.
They grow in large clumps.
While they are very drought tolerant, I do have to water them occasionally. It becomes obvious when they need a drink.
In the winter, they turn purple.
Some are sending up blooms.
This is the last thing the plant does before dying and allowing its many chicks to have the space. I usually pull them out once they die so there isn't a brown blob in the there.
The largest one at this time is nine inches across.
