I'm trying to identify my plant
Rosettes are about 1 - 1 1/2" ; color appears to be pure green; leaves have cilia. Very hardy -- I overwinter it in a shed that stays in the mid 30's when we go below 0, but it has been outside well below freezing with no apparent harm.
Plant in picture is a little piece of the mother that I just potted up as a gift -- original is 6x as big.

|Since you came here I'm guessing you already know it is a Sempervivum. Which cultivar it is can never be known once the original name is lost, assuming it was correct to begin with. I doubt even the species can be named although it is very likely (also) Sempervivum, but not necessarily. You now have what we fondly refer to as a NOID. (No ID)|

|Hi there Richard. Your sempervivum is wonderful. Love the texture of the leaves.
Tim is correct, in that we can't identify your lovely semp. There are thousands of named hybrids, then add in all the different species, it would be impossible to give a correct identification. On rare occasions there are very unique semps that can be identified by a photo.
