I bought these all in one pot,they were just smaller & all green.Now they are all getting color from the cold except one of them.Is this normal or could this one plant be different.When i planted them it looked like they all may have been attached to the larger one (that's not reacting to the cold) but i could be wrong.

When i purchased these they were labeled Sempervivum rubellum 'Mahogany' I was looking at some plants on-line & found this plant that looks exactly like what i have.Could i please get some opinions on these 2 plants.
Is a picture that closer to the plant needed?Thank you
A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!

Jelinda here is a link to photos of Mahogany.

Your colored ones really do look like the ones on Horst site. It appears to do a reverse of the colors for different seasons.

It should be easy to check and see if there are still stolons attached to the all green semp, from the colored offsets.

Jelinda, one thing I love about semps is that they can/do look so different even from each other, I've received several from online and I often wonder if a mistake was made because there's one or two which look different from the rest Shrug!
Mahogany looks pretty!
