Since I live in the Midwest (think cold and snow), will Hens and Chicks survive indoors in a room with lots of windows?  I usually bring the pot into the garage over the winter and take it back…Continue

Kathy, from what I learned last fall, stonecrop is the sedum that grows like ground cover. I'm still in the learning phase with these wonderful plants. :)

Connie welcome to the group and I love your pot, is that a mini hosta or varigated sedum you have in the lower right corner???

Comment by Robin (N.IL zone 5) on March 5, 2012 at 8:06am

Hen n Chicks and sedums have become quite popular over the years, from your basic green plant that is happy to grow where other plants will not. To decorative green roofs, living walls, wreaths...the list goes on.

As you can see in the group pic I only have 2 hen and chick plants, the redish one is showing off it's winter coloring come warm weather it will be all green. the little one was .25 at lowes that I picked up with 2 others that didn't survive. I thought it was just a baby of a webbed varierty but it turns out that it was full grown. Figured that out when it had it's chicks.

Also as you can see in the picture there isn't much soil in the area, I don't know why the previous owners had this rock area but it's ugly without plants in it. After 11 yrs it is still a work in progress.

This is such a good idea.  We have a bad drought time here in central Alabama.  It is called summer!  I have only purchased and grown Autumn Joy Sedum, but it is doing pretty well.  My biggest problem is that I have a lot of shade.  Do any of these plants do well in shade?  My sedum doesn't always the bloom the way it should and I think that is the problem.  I do have two flowerbeds that I could use those that need sun.

Audra, your Angelina sedum looks remarkably similar to what we call Gold Mound Sedum, as mine gets covered in the tiny yellow flowers in Spring/Summer like the Angelina does

Oh by the way that was yesterday. lol

How cool is that!!!

Comment by Sharon Howell z7NC on March 5, 2012 at 5:54am

How funny, you told us in chat you were starting this group and I go to Lowes and they have hens and chicks for 1.98......I bought six.

It looks like they may be all the same. I bought some one year, some did not make it.

Thanks for starting group.

This light green is my favorite.  Angelina - easy to transplant, looks great all the time.  It kind of has a red tip in the winter, but stays green.  I need to take a pic of mine now, it looks so cool.
