I bought some hens and chicks at Home Depot last month. Unfortunately, as is usually the case, they weren't identified. (Note to any professional grower/suppliers... please identify plants when selling to big box stores!)

Anyway, when I say 'some', I really mean a couple dozen pots. (Hey, they were only $3 a pot and I have several hundred feet of rock walls to stuff.)

I'm attaching a pic in hopes that someone can identify it I did a google image search, and found a lot of 'close but not quites'.

Hi Rick. That is a lovely semp you have there.
I'm afraid we won't be able to identify it for you. There are so many different named semps that can look very similar to each other depending on the time of year and other growing conditions. No matter, it is beautiful and well worth filling in your rock wall. It also looks like it has some very nice watermarks. Lovey dubby
