Hens and Chicks Flowered, Now What?

I’ve had this hens and chicks plant for 3 years, but this is the first time it has flowered. Will it bloom every year? What should I do after the flower fades?

Hens and chicks like many perennials take several years to establish before blooming. Remove the flower as it fades to keep the planting looking good. And, don’t be surprised if the flowering rosette dies. You won’t miss it since the many babies, chicks, that form around the flowering plant, hen, quickly fill in the void.
