I no longer grow this sempervivum because of considerable winter die back in my zone 7 garden.

Talking about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Zilver Andre'), springcolor wrote:

This cultivar has been culled from my zone 7 collection of Sempervivum due to constant winter damage even when covered to protect from the rain.

Talking about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Shirley's Joy'), springcolor wrote:

Shirley's Joy has been nothing but a disappointment. This cultivar every winter dies back to the brink of death, then as the growing season progresses it recovers but never looks outstanding in my zone 7 garden. My Sempervivum gardens are covered during the rainy season and still this cultivar is a poor performer.

Talking about Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum arachnoideum 'Ashes of Roses'), springcolor wrote:

This sempervivum has been culled from my collection after repeated winter damage even when covered all winter. Seems to almost die and then when spring comes it rebounds but never looks outstanding. Many other cultivars that will perform better can replace this.
