Robert G. is growing Sempervivums (also called "hens and chicks") outdoors in the ground all year long. Some of these rosette succulents are hardy down to Zones 3 and 4. They do better in the ground than in pots.
Colorado resident Mary B. told us, "My Sempervivum are outside all year round, I also have a rock wall with Sedums and other succulents planted.
Succulent grower Karen G. says, "I leave [my hens and chicks] outside where they get rain or snow and in a pot that won't freeze and break. They come back every year."
Rhonda S. is growing a lot of succulents. She says, "I try to stick with succulents in Zone 9 so I don't have to bring in for the winter. I have probably close to 100 potted succulents and cactus so names are hard to come by.
