Carmen Hens And Chicks's attractive succulent pointy leaves are green in color with prominent dark red tips. As an added bonus, the foliage turns a gorgeous deep purple in the fall. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for a low-water garden. Deer resistant.
Performs best in full sun in sandy, extremely well-drained soil. Feed yearly with an organic fertilizer. Drought tolerant once established. Many 'Chicks' can be seen outside the main rosettes of foliage in late spring. These can be left untouched or removed and rooted in other parts of the landscape.
