Hello all,

Could you help me identify the plant in the following photographs. I bought it today at a garden center and have no idea what kind it is. It was bought in Gloucestershire, England.

P.S. If it helps, I have named it John Thomas.

Looks a like an African Violet maybe
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I have found out elsewhere that John Thomas is a Aeonium tabulaeforme. Cheers.

I agree John Thomas (excellent name, BTW Smiling ) is a dinner plate Aeonium.
