I got Velveteen from SMG. Now, who is it really? Pacific Velveteen or Pacific Mauve? It kind looks like a ball, has a lot of red on it, only green in the middle and is really soft.

Hi Lori.
There is a 'Velveteen' ... ED SKROCKI (US), 1993 http://www.smgsucculents.com/sempervivum%20velveteen This one has prominent cilia.

And a 'Pacific Velveteen' ... GARY GOSSETT (US), 1992 http://www.smgsucculents.com/sempervivum%20Pacific%20velvete... This one has a velvet texture. Looks similar to Pacific Mauve, but has some differences that set the two apart.

Hope this helps?

Can you take a photo for us?

I will take a photo pretty soon. I got it from SMG and was trying to add it to the database but it is not listed only Pacific Mauve and Pacific Velveteen show up. I will be back after while with a pic, let me get it in a pot first.
