Gold Nugget Succulent
Gold Nugget Succulent is a Sempervivum with bright gold foliage with red picotee edge that changes to bright lime green in the summer and back to gold and red in the fall. The plants are currently green. Hens & Chicks need plenty of outdoor sunlight to show their best colors and maintain a tight rosette form. They thrive in gritty, well-draining soils and pots with drainage holes. They produce new offsets or "chicks". These chicks can be left to form tidy clusters or removed to share and transplant. Sempervivums do most of their growing in the spring and summer and will thrive with weekly watering and afternoon shade if temperatures exceed 80F. This plant is frost hardy and will happily overwinter under an insulating blanket of snow. Protect from heavy rains and standing water to prevent rot. A mature rosette will grow up to 5" across. Hardiness zones 3 – 8. You will receive one plant in a 3-inch organic biodegradable pot.
