Hello and Happy New Year! I have first posted this photo on the Plant ID forum and the ID given is a sempervivum, so I thought might as well post it here as well for all the semp aficionados:




This plant is at The Getty Center, in Los Angeles, CA

Hi Lynn! At The Getty Center there was no ID marker so I just took photos and posted on our Plant ID forum..well initially it was identified as a sempervivum, other entries ID's it as Echeveria agavoides ..whichever way it goes, it is really one lovely succulent Big Grin

Good job Tarev. Here it is. http://www.smgrowers.com/products/plants/plantdisplay.asp?pl...
Now you can put it in the database.

Here is a another link. http://www.debraleebaldwin.com/images_articles/Echeveria.htm
You'll have to make a new entry for it. Echeveria agavoides 'Lipstick' isn't in the database yet.

If you ever find yourself in a similar case, take a picture or a few pictures and email them to the place you visited. The head person there should be able to ID it for you. I did this a few times and never had a problem.
