Only in it's fall colors?

It sure is beautiful.

Very nice! Agree with Lynn, but an idea of size would be nice (and help confirm the ID)

Hurray! Hi twit. It really is a beauty, but difficult to tell the size in that photo.

Here's what she says: "The pot is about 12 inches wide.
After further searching, I think this could be O. erubescens. It is not hardy and winters in the greenhouse." and sent another pic.

Jacki here is a link for O. erubescens. Orostachys spinosa

Try posting the photo here. Or post here to Marko. He has some great information on the naming of Orostachys. http://sempervivum.aforumfree.com/t1681-orostachys-systemati...
What a mess in the naming department.
That is one reason why we haven't done very much with the Orostachys in the database here. Still trying to make sure I have entries correctly named with synonyms. Sad

Let me know what you find out.
