Does anyone know the name of these echeverias?

I have a few echeveria plants and do not know the botanical name of them. Can anyone help please/ I have them numbered for naming.
Thanks! Carol

    thanks for this. Yes, I know they are of that family. I am wondering if anyone knows the botanical name of each of them. Which variety each is.

    This is something I saved to help me with identifying my succulents. Hopefully you can enlarge it enough to read it.

    2-6 are hen and chicks, members of the family Crassulaceae, not echeveria. 1 is a echeveria domingo

      @Carol Speake - The Gardening Cook yes and no what I should have said is the hens and chicks are crassula and the other is echivaria domingo they are both in the genus of Crassulaceae but totally different species. to explain it is like a Chihuahua and a timber wolf both belong to the genus Canidae but are from vastly different species

    You actually only have one echeveria plant here, but all are succulents. Their botanical names are as follows: 1. Echeveria Imbricata 2. Graptosedum Vera Higgins 3, 4, 5, & 6 are different types of Sempervivum (commonly known as Hens & Chicks as everyone above has mentioned) 7. Haworthia Turguda I recommend going to www.succulentguide.com if you need more help with plant identification.

    3&4 look to be Sempervivums not Echeverias and 5&6 are for sure Sempervivums (aka hens and chicks) 7 is a Haworthia.;))
