Any help would be appreciated in helping to identify this succulent. It is two years old and is currently in my greenhouse. I do not know if it is winter hardy, so I didn't want to take a chance. The tag with it said Fred Ives, but after doing some reading, it appears that FI grows slowly and I would not consider this plant to be a slow grower. It's also currently in bloom, so hopefully that will help also with an ID.

I don't doubt FI.
Graptoveria (XGraptoveria 'Fred Ives')

Speed of growth is subjective to conditions.

It looks like Fred Ives to me. Mine grew rapidly until the chickens decided it was a tasty treat. The rosettes should be fairly large. Here's a good description from San Marcos growers. They list it as fast growing. http://www.smgrowers.com/produ...
When counting, try not to mix chickens with blessings.
