One of the 'joys' of living on the Plateau is that we can have places in which the soil is only about an inch deep. Not even grass will grow well under those circumstances, so Betsy and I have turned to Sempervivum (Hens and Chicks) to grow in those areas. The clump in the picture above is in one of our flower beds where the soil barely covers the bedrock beneath it. But these semps seem to be doing quite well.
