Are Hens & Chicks Supposed to Bloom?

Are Hens & Chicks supposed to bloom? I've had them for years, but mine have never bloomed before this year.

Mine have done that too. I don't know if it just happens every set amount of time, say two years or four years, or if it has to do with how much water they are receiving. Now you have me curious! I think I'll google that and get back to you!

Ditto. I had mine a number of years and they've only bloomed a handful of times.

Mine have flowered, not every year, perhaps every 3 years. I also noticed that after flowering I soon have a multitude of chicks.....nature at its best!!

Yeah, one of mine flowered this year, too. Isn't it is pretty? I'm sending a picture...

I have has H&C for a number of years in a rock garden. And yes they do bloom, just not all of them at once :-) I usually notice that the ones that do bloom, die completely afterward.
