Low-water landscapes filled with colorful succulents continue to surge in popularity as architects and nurseries discover extraordinary species and hybrids. Topping the list as one of the most popular are "hens-and-chicks," a common name given to two species that look similar but are suited to very different climates. This story focuses on the cold-hardy Sempervivum spp. Native to the mountains of Central and Southern Europe, these tough plants thrive in snowy winters and temperate summers. If the desert landscape of the Kaufmann House is your aesthetic ideal but your climate is more like that of Pennsylvania's Fallingwater, then literally thousands of Sempervivum spp. are good choices for you.
