A must-have for rock gardens and succulent plantings, Rubikon Hens and Chicks has striking ruby red rosettes. An easy-care, drought-tolerant perennial, it is winter hardy, even in cooler climates. With its spreading rosettes, Rubikon will add color and texture to your garden. It also works well as a ground cover. Just plant the Hens and Chicks close together in a sunny spot in your garden, and the rosettes will grow and multiply, filling in the spaces. The distinctive rosettes have made Hens & Chicks a classic among gardeners. The larger rosettes are called the "hens" while the smaller rosettes are the "chicks." Ships in 2" pot.
