Flower Of The Week

18 Jun

This week we’ll be looking at a succulent which isn’t a flower, but it does look like one.
Hen and Chicks

Hen and Chicks are part of the succulent family and grow in a rosette pattern. They get their name because they start out as one main plant (the hen) and the offspring begin as tiny buds on the main plant (the chicks). The chicks eventually take up root near the hen. Hen and chicks are extremely easy to grow, and are becoming an increasingly popular choice to include in wedding bouquets.

    I’ve never thought to include them in an ornamental bouquet like that. Just beautiful. I’ve always like hens and chicks.
