What is this succulent looking plant w/ white rosette & red tips

IleanaDUMay 4, 2012

I found some lab manuals at our school with a cover showing a ground cover of some type that looks like a white rosette with very substantial & dramatic red tips. It resembles Hen & Chicks or some type of sedum or sempevivarum but I can't find anything like it on the internet.

Any idea what this is?

Here are links the picture on the cover of the book:

I wonder if it's an inhanced image of Sempervivum arachnoideum �Robin�?

Here is a link that might be useful: possible?
