A wonderful collection of evergreen, carpet forming succulents with thick, fleshy leaves. Plants form small or large rosettes depending on the variety. Little offsets (chicks) cluster around the parent rosettes (hens). The clustered star-shaped summer flowers are often rosy-red; can also appear in shades of pink, yellow, white or green. Excellent in containers or rock gardens. Winter hardy to zone 5.
