One of the Graptopetalums, I think.

Thanks Dave I wonder if this it. I'm hoping that @valleylynn or @MagerRoorHammer can confirm Graptopetalum (Graptopetalum superbum)

I thought at first it looked a lot like Echeveria (Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg') which is a popular offering in nurseries and big box stores but the leaves look thicker so yes, it could be one of the Graptopetalums, with that coloring, maybe 'Pinky'.

Yes, I think it is probably one of the Graptopetalums.

I don't think it monocarpic, is there somewhere you came across that info? None of mine have ever died after blooming.
