There is great pleasure to be had in watching the slow progress as the leaves of a hen-and-chick expand to reveal a fully opened rosette. In the case of 'More Honey', the reverse sides of the succulent leaves are a rich blend of honey, pink and rose unfolding to expose a four-inch wide rosette of fleshy sea-green leaves margined with fine, silvery hairs. Red stems attach smaller chicks to the central rosette. The color of the tightly infolded chicks is red. Flower spikes can reach 8 to 12 inches.

Summer.   1 in. x 8-12 in.
