Hen and Chicks Blossoms

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 3 August 2016 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This was a first for us to see, which were blossoms from stalks that rose from hen and chick plants.

Hens and chicks is a common name for a group of small succulent plants belonging to the flowering plant family Crassulaceae, native to Europe and northern Africa. They grow close to the ground with leaves formed around each other in a rosette, and propagating by offsets. The "hen" is the main plant, and the "chicks" are the offspring, which start as tiny buds on the main plant and soon sprout their own roots, taking up residence close to the mother plant.

This is beautiful! I had a similar picture of the flower last Saturday. I didn't even know that the hens and chicks plant had blooms and then one day all these little stalks started to grow with blooms on them. I was so surprised! http://elaine.aminus3.com/image/2016-07-30.html
