Looks like an Echeveria. Haven't found a match yet though.

I agree on Echiveria.
I will check the four places where I placed orders for sempervivums to see if I can find it or a label sounds familier but everyone keep posting, something will ring a bell.

Jo Ann, I posted on another forum that it looks a little like echeveria Fred Ives. Does that ring a bell?

Not really but I will check Fred out on google.
WOW it sure is close.
I also found Elegans which I remember, but there are many desert plants in that catagory.

I am satisfied this is a Graptopetalum. I entered it in the database.

I'm in the Echeveria camp, similar to this one, popular in stores the past couple years:

Personally, I think that it's a cross between the two, perhaps graptoveria. It's beautiful, whatever it is. Thumbs up I'd like to find one like that.
