Sempervivum 'Purple Beauty' (Hens & Chicks) Plant

Sempervivum 'Purple Beauty' (Hens & Chicks) Plant

  • $ 5.95

Purple Beauty, has a subtle earthy tone that really reminds me of the purple mountains in Arizona. The colder temperatures of fall, winter and early spring enhance the foliage color.  In the warmer months the foliage is more of a silver green with light metallic purple hues.  In early summer the "hens" emerge in bloom with the flowers being a rosy red.  Low water needs and needs sharp drainage.  Great for containers, border edging, and kids gardens.
