Sempervivums are plants that originate on the European continent. Found at high altitudes known as alpine zones, they thrive in this harsh and rugged terrain. Sempervivums are becoming increasingly popular in the United States as gardeners fall in love with the textures and colors of these amazing little plants.

I know so little about these and semps in general other than I like them. Mine look so much alike to me. Great article and I found the distinction in how the Jovibarba pup compared to Semps interesting but I see that the name for Jovibarba is subsumed into Semps. The article could use an edit if I have this info right? I tip my hat to you.
