"Great succulent, large fleshy leaves that are blue gray green. Offsets with little plants around the mother plant hense the name "Hen and chickens". Needs protection from sever frost or freezes. Prefers loose will drained soil. Blooms late Spring to mid Fall with tall spikes of blooms that are pinkish yellow with red lip margin. Thrives on water, but do not overwater, needs very good drainage. Have finally got it to survive outside in Western Washington state by planting in a raised bed with excellant drainage and some overhead protection from bigger plants. "
