Yes and yes
The sizes in my photos are about fully grown and as mentioned already, flowering rosettes die but you get loads of babies as replacement that you can just leave attached or gently pull off (they come with a teeny tap root) and re-pot. They are very vigorous if kept dry from rot and extremely easy. And the colours and displays in summer are beautiful. They have a happy look about them in full sun.
I need more red ones for variety and last year I bought a bluish Echeveria Elegans which looked a gonna this winter but it's sprouting from lower down the base, so I am thrilled!
