Looks like an Echeveria to me but that's just a wild guess and if it is Echeveria I have no idea which one. Green Grin!

Looks like Graptosomething but this one has longer leaves and neck then my other Graptosedum. I think it was Bev giving a comment somewhere on the beauty of these longer necked Grapto's but I don't remember where.

Above is a Graptosedum Shrug!
Tomorrow I will take a picture of what I considered to be a Ivy but now after seeing the following I have a peculiar feeling. Senico Rolling my eyes.

The plant resembles Pachyphytum longifolium, not sure about the flowers though.

http://www.lapshin.org/succulent/plants.php?id=agen&s=Pachyp...

http://www.plantgenera.org/species.php?id_species=736836&lan...

There is a similarity in the flowers, it might be a cross.

Graptoveria Fred Ives has similar flowers..

http://www.lapshin.org/succulent/plants.php?id=agen&s=Grapto...

x Graptoveria 'Fred Ives' - A beautiful and durable succulent plant that produces large clumps of rosettes to 8 inches tall by nearly 1 foot wide with broad bronze and pink succulent leaves atop short (< 1 foot) stems with 1'-2' long branched inflorescence bearing red-orange centered pale yellow flowers in summer

Thank you Janet, like that Ivy I have found few more succulents on Peter Lapshins site which I had no idea were succulents. I just grow and observe what they want and provide.
Ivy grows in shady, cool and moist environment while mine wants the opposite Blinking . I had been thinking about that tendency for a long time. Shrug!

Arif.
