Sempervivum arachnoideum Forest Frost is an historic garden plant with small rosettes of succulent foliage. Fine, silvery hairs join together the apple green leaf tips like a spiderâ web. Displays pastel pink, star-shaped flowers.

Sempervivum means always alive. They are commonly called Hens Chicks as the Mother, or Hen will send out Babies, or Chicks to quickly multiply and create a beautiful patch of succulent bliss. Sempervivum are monocarpic and will expire after blooming, although the Chicks will quickly fill in the space left by the Mother. These plants are almost always changing color, so dont be surprised if they look completely different through the seasons.

Hens Chicks grow best in well-drained, gravelly soil that is not wet in winter. Wet feet may cause the plant to rot. They are drought tolerant once established. Great in containers and rock gardens, including small crevices or spaces with limited soil.
