Hi Zed, what you have is a Sempervivum, the Hens and Chicks plant.
Unfortunately, once they bloom, the rosette that the flower stalk originates from dies.
Usually, they don't flower until after they have made some chicks to take their place.
You can keep the flower stem after the flowers are pollinated by bees or other insects upside down in a paper bag and collect the seeds as they dry, and try growing your own hybrid Sempervivum from seed.
It's not difficult, and if you've ever had the urge to propagate your own succulents this is a good place to start.
