I understand what you are saying Sol, but both here in the U.S. and Europe this semp is credited with the same hybridizer, David T. Ford ( GB ), 1981.
So it is not a case of two hybridizers using the same name for there new semp.
Howard Wills knows this semp and verifies that it is the one that we now show in our database. Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'State Fair')
I do like the idea of giving the fuzzy, highly colored one a different designation of 'Tufted State Fair'. I grew this one for quite a few years before discovering it was not the correct 'State Fair'.
