I have other types of Hens and Chicks growing in my garden amongst my eighty-plus other things which include herbs, plants, flowers, grasses, vines, shrubs, and trees, and they can be seen pictured below,
A "central message" by the way Hens and Chicks live their lives is applicable to all families, no matter what they celebrate, and even if they do not celebrate at all. According to a citation in Wiki, "Hens and Chicks is a common name for a group of small succulents belonging to the flowering plant family Crassulaceae, native to Europe and northern Africa. They grow close to the ground [or in my case a container] 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 . . ."
"Upon maturity (usually around three to four years old) the plant will send up a single stalk that ca reach 5-25 cm tall. The head of the stalk is a cluster of star-shaped buds 1-2 cm in diameter, which range in color from dark pink to yellow and that flower for several weeks. After blooming, the plant will die. Usually by this time it has produced many offsets ('chicks')."
