That echeveria looks much like my hen and chicks but a quick google search tells me that they are different plants, although some echeveria species are commonly called hen and chicks. The ones in my garden have done quite well overwintering where temps are usually below freezing and sometimes dip below 0° F.

I'm glad to see other succulents that will winter over in this area. We have some ice plants as ground cover on a stone walkway but I'll keep some of these other plants in mind for other parts of the yard. We have access to a good water supply in our desert area but it's still good to have at least some plants that don't take a lot of water so we can cut back on water usage.
