hens chicks TT copy

Such a hardy, interesting plant/flower. At the end of last Summer, by mistake, I sprayed all my flowers with weed killer thinking I was spraying insect killer. Some of the plants, I wasn’t so concerned about since they were annuals anyway, but I’d had these plants for quite a few years when a co-worker friend gave me a start, and I was sure they were done. The looked really sick, and even this Spring they looked not so great, but little by little, they came came back.

Just like people, you can’t keep a good, hardy person down. They’ll perk back up after a fall even if it takes a bit to recover. I know some people that are like that. You think they’re defeated for sure, but they just keep going, and they keep going with a good heart and spirit.

Hens & Chicks in The Patch

From my flower bed…these are the Hens & Chicks that I’ve had since probably in the late 90’s. A friend at work gave them to me. I didn’t know that after two years they will grow this long shoot that becomes the bloom of the plant, and I kept tearing it off. Well, this year, I let it grow and then researched about them to learn that this is the normal process of the Hens & Chicks. This is the blooming flower that appears after two years, and then it dies and falls off.

The Hens & Chicks are very hardy and can be planted in containers or among your flower bed.

If anyone has more information on this plant/flower, I’d love if you’d share or just leave a comment.
