Semprevivum ruby heart hens and chicks

(This plant comes in a 2.5 inch pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Sempervivum ruby Heart (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 a green foliage with deep, ruby 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.

Frost tolerance: Hardy at least to 10°F (-12°C)

Origin: French and Italian Alps
Growth habits: Clumping rosettes
Watering needs: Moderate water

Very pretty

Keeping this plant indoors as it sounds like it cannot handle the 100+ degrees we get in Phoenix area. Coloring is very pretty.
