Hens and chickens are wonderful plants and we have them is several places in our yard. They will grow where other things won't and are beautiful succulents year round. Hens and chickens are sempervivum, which means live forever. But they don't. Before a hen dies, she will bloom as in the picture above. The hen will die, but there are hopefully many chicks to take her place.
