There are many species and cultivars of Sempervivum, commonly called Hens and Chicks or Houseleeks. Because they are a hardy succulent, they have fleshy leaves in a rosette shape that vary in size, shape, color, and texture.

Colors can be various shades of green, pink, and red; and some Sempervivum have cobwebbing on their leaves!
