Welcome Ed wow looks amazing!! Lots of green! It is challenging to place a name on a semp once the label is list so we call them NOIDs (for no identification) and there are several that yours looks like, but best to keep it as a NOID whenever in doubt...If you had a label(name) and want us to verify it we could do that. They're such changeable plants thru the year and based on growing environment
I tip my hat to you.

NOID works for me now I can call them the Red Noids Smiling .
We have had these for years and they just keep growing. Added a bunch of the pots about 3-4 years back, animals kept eating my wife's flowers and she got tired of the battle and just filled them with the chicken & hens .

Hi Ed. Nice to meet you, and welcome to the Sempervivum forum.
Your sempervivum look wonderful.
Have you had a chance to look through the Sempervivum database here at NGA?

Lynn, thanks for the welcome and the link. I am amazed to find a forum just on these plants. My wife dug out a small pot about 25 years ago from some that were at her fathers house when it was sold. They have been just been growing and spreading with very little attention. We did have a large box (old sand box from when the kids were young) in the center of the back yard a few years back but a cold winter and hungry animals they pretty much got wiped out.

It sounds very much like your will become addicted to this amazing plant. There are so many different ones, from very tiny to quite large. And it all different colors and combinations of colors. Every day is a delight to see what is happening in the collection as they change almost daily.
They should do well in your winter weather as long as they are planted in fast draining soil/mix and top dressed with crushed gravel or chicken grit. They don't do well if exposed to cold drying winds in winter, but love having a nice cover of snow. Smiling
