Description:

Chick Charms® Berry Bomb™ is also known as Sempervivum Director Jacobs. A year-round favorite for color and appearance. It is an eye-catching red and has lots of cupped leaves. A heavy lining of long, white cilia give the rosette a frosty appearance. This variety closes into a ball and deepens to purple in winter. Bright sunlight will help it express its brightest pigments.

Specifications:

  • Height: 2″
  • Colors: Red/Purple
  • Hardiness Zone: 3-8
  • Arrives in a 3.5-inch pot

Seasonal Notes:

Sempervivum succulents do most of their growing in the spring and summer and will thrive with weekly watering. They are incredibly frost-hardy and will happily overwinter under an insulating blanket of snow. Protect from heavy rains and standing water to prevent rot.

Care:

  • Light: Full Sun
  • Space: 4-6″
  • Bloom Time: Summer
  • Water: Allow soil to dry between waterings

Hens & Chicks need plenty of outdoor sunlight to show their best colors and maintain a tight rosette form. They thrive in gritty, well-draining soils and pots with drainage holes. They produce new offsets or "chicks" on stolons. These chicks can be left to form tidy clusters or removed to share and transplant.

Sempervivum plants need full sun and prefer average to rather poor, sandy, or rocky soil, which must drain quickly. Do not fertilize. Space 6" apart.

SUGGESTED USE: In rock gardens, trough gardens, wall crevices, dry gardens, edging, strawberry jars, or other containers.
