|Chicks & Hens are so very unique|
When I asked her about them, she said they are called Chicks and Hens. They grow close to the ground. The large, central plant---the "Hen"---is the main plant, and it spawns the "Chicks" around it. The Chicks take root near the Hen and grow there.
|The leaves form in rosettes|
Clara Ruth dug three of her little plants up and gave them to me to take back to Texas for planting. They thrive in loose, sandy soil and do not need much water. Even I can get them to live long lives!
