Hen and Chicks Cactus Flower

I have a large flower pot filled with these cactus.  They get covered in snow every winter and still survive year after year.  They flower once each summer.  An unusual looking flower for sure.  Kind of alien like.  Picture was taken with a Canon EOS T3i (18 mega pixel) , focal length: 50mm, f/5.6. Original cropped to bring out the detail of the flower.


  1. Beautiful, do you know the name of it? and what state do you live in?
    Thank you

  2. Just know them as hens and chicks. Purchased from a local garden center. They just multiplied over time. These were in an 18 inch pot. I live in Toronto Canada.
