A wonderful list from our ATP database showing many different species and hybrids of what was once named Jovibarba (Genus) and is now Sempervivum (Genus).
http://garden.org/plants/searc...

Here are a few photos I took today 1/25/2016. As you can see there can be dramatic differences in the species and hybrids of the interesting plant.





A link with some interesting information on how to tell them apart from the other Sempervivum species.

What are yours looking like this time of year?

Great photos Julia.
Look at all that red on your Sempervivum globiferum subsp. arenarium 'from Murtal'.
That one has done very well for me over the years, as has the one from Aione.

They are prolific. I don't have that many because for some reason I like the Heuffs better.

Patty,
'Murtal' means in English: Valley of the river Mur.

The river Mur is in Austria, in the province of Styria (Steiermark).

In that Murtal there grow several Semps in the environment, like S. pittonii and S. montanum ssp. stiriacum.

And another roller, the Sempervivum globiferum ssp. hirtum (hillebrandtii) from Gulsenberg.
Gulsenberg means Mount Gulsen (from where we know the S. pittonii as well). This mountain is in the 'Murtal' too.

This is S. globiferum ssp. hirtum (hillebrandtii) from Gulsenberg, a wild form, only to be found on a small place (like pittonii):

Today I looked after my rollers.

They do well. Here two different types of 'allionii'. Pics shot today:

Great photos Chris and Wolfgang.

Lynn,

there are so many nice rollers. Hard to say, which I like best.

There are two interesting cultivars in my collection, which I can recommend.

First this one, I got with the name Sempervivum globiferum ssp. hirtum 'Purpurea':
Thumb of 2016-01-28/turini/85debf

and the other one is a cultivar from Sue Thomas (UK). It's 'Autumn Fire':
