    Today at a Home Depot, in the houseplant section, I bought a Graptosedum Alpenglow "Vera Higgins" The grower is : Altman Plants in Vista, CA 92084. It says it has a reddish glow, hence the name Alpenglow. Vera Higgins was a person 1892 - 1968, who was instrumental in the early Rock Garden Societies, and authored a book, published in 1964. At least that's what my google search told me :)
