Youngs Garden Center http://www.youngs-garden.com/ I just found another wonderful source for hardy succulents. I received my first order from Youngs this morning. I was very please with the healthy plants and fast service, and they sent a free plant. The plants were shipped USPS Priority, and were package and identified nicely. They have a nice selection to choose from. Here are photos of the varieties I got.
--S. arach. subsp tomentosum---S. 'Booth's Red'---S. 'Gamalea'

Thanks Charleen, I can't wait for them to start growing. Did you have a chance to look at what they have? They have some wonderful plants.

I watched a video on YouTube, that's how I found out about them. Which red and black one are you talking about Charleen? Can you give us a link?

Boy am I happy to have disappointed you Tee. Rolling on the floor laughing
I was really happy with my order from this nursery, and will order again from them in the future.
Since they are only 1 1/2 hours from me, I might take a day trip and visit their nursery. If I do I will take lots of pictures to post here.

I just purchased these:

Blue Boy Sempervivum
Booths Red Sempervivum
Lilac Time Sempervivum
Purple Passion Sempervivum
Blaze Sempervivum
Gay Jester Sempervivum
Magnificum Sempervivum
Bellotts Fourpi Sempervivum

One I really wanted was Fuego, but it is out of stock. If this goes well and judging from the feedback here, I'll be buying more. They accept Paypal and that can be good and bad.
Who me?

I love the plants I got from them earlier this year. They are all doing well. Lovey dubby

This is one of my new favorites that came from Youngs. I love the way it grows it offsets surrounding the rosette.
