Looks like Sempervivum tectorum to me.

Yes, it does look to be a tectorum. But which one? There are many individual types of tectorum, even within the original specie, from different parts of the European continent. Each one with it own distinct differences. Then there are the many hybrids we now have. Again, each with it's own characteristics.
Therefore this one would need to be designated as a NOID (No identification, No ID).
But is sure is a lovely one. It would be a wonderful additions to the sempervivum photos here in the Sempervivum Parent Plant. Sempervivum (Sempervivum)

We would love for you to join in the conversations in the Sempervivum Forum. You can keep us updated on the seasonal changes your beautiful colony of semps goes through. Can't wait to see what they do.

Thanks all!

I didn't look hard enough to see there is a Hardy Succulents forum (hardy har har) even though that's implied by there being one for Tender Succulents. Rolling my eyes.
