I was walking down the street yesterday and saw this plant growing around somebodys mailbox and was blown away by it but have no idea what it is. Could anyone tell me what it is? Duh

Those are Hens and Chicks! I've had them forever. They're a perennial, low maintenence, propogate, like partial sun. They're cool little guys. I bought (well, my mother)5 them at a yard sale 10 years ago, and I have about 35 of them in a pot. flw

They're worth getting - you only need a couple of small pots of them, then watch the family grow.

My grandmother has some of those but the little ones are hanging over the edges of the pot. I love it and she won't let me have it!!! ters Maybe now that I know what it is (she's been bugging me to ask ya'll) she will either let me have hers or go buy me one.

I have a couple of varieties of them growing near the waterfall of my little pond. This year one of them flowered, very cool indeed! It put off a small stalk that looked nothing like the rest of the plant and it burst forth with almost a dozen little pink flowers. The flowers were star shaped and had very pointy petals. Small, but nice.
