I bought this plant without a name, but I'm fascinated by the blooms. They look like they form a heart Smiling It's some type of succulent, but do you know which one? Thank you!

It is an Echeveria or hybrid (flowers are closed and tubular, not open and star-shaped).

Thanks, Tara, I googled graptopetalum and I can see the resemblance, but the flowers are different than my plant. That search however brought up echeveria, and I'm thinking that might be closer. The flowers sure look like the echeveria flowers. What do you think?

This is a no lashing zone, and trying to help is always welcome. :+)

Hens'n'chicks is one of those nicknames that kind of depends on where you're standing. In a warmer climate like yours, Echeverias seem to get called that. In a more temperate climate where Echs aren't hardy, Sempervivums carry the load.
