Sempervivum rojo (Hen-and-chicks) generally grow for several years before blooming. This is a good choice for rock gardens, container gardens of all types, rock walls and rooftop and vertical gardens. This succulent has an amazing dark red foliage with deep, burgundy red. Easy to grow and reproduce just by removing the small baby rosettes and replanting in a new location at almost any time. After flowering, the mother rosette dies to leave room for the chicks; remove by tugging gently at the base of the bloom stem.

Sempervivum contains over 40 species of rosette shaped succulents, native from Europe, eastern Asia, and northern Africa. They are among the most frost resistant succulents, and as such are the most common succulent in gardens that get more than a light frost. Sempervivum comes from the Latine for 'always alive', referring to its toughness.

Sempervivum Tojo Red Hen and chicks

I would give a 5 star rating. Thrilled to receive my plants. They were wrapped well and sent in a timely manner. They seem to be thriving well. Thank you will buy again.

It’s looking good

I am a little crazy to transplant this and other plants in southern Arizona when we have a long run of 110º or more. This plant is looking slightly stressed but healthy and “ready to go” when our temperatures go back below 100º. I’ve bought four plants from Planet Desert in the past month and all have held up well.
