Hen And Chick Pots

Hens & Chicks are so popular these days for their exciting geometric patterns of tight rosette foliage and their extremely low maintenance in full sun. We have many excellent varieties growing in our greenhouse, and with this offer, our professionals will select from the most exciting varieties we’ve got in stock and send five top-quality plants. Along with the Hens & Chicks, you’ll get a free copper planter and saucer set. This designer set is so thoughtfully designed for growing succulents. It’s more wide than deep, so these shallow-rooted plants won’t sit too low. There are holes in the bottom of the planter and three “feet” along the bottom to elevate the pot. This way, water will drain out instead of pooling around the plant roots (succulents don’t perform well with wet feet). The saucer underneath catches any drained water. The planter and saucer are both made of copper-tone metal, not copper, so they will not discolor. 11¼” wide x 3″ deep.
