You may have to wait until the flowers open.

The plant reminds me of Kalanchoe but the bloom stalks don't (my first thought was milo Smiling )

I'm with Daisy! The leaves look like Kalanchoe, but the bloom spikes don't look like any I'm familiar with.

I agree I grew that when I still lived in the UK.

Wow, what an interesting plant.

Did you see where it is related to sedum?

I'm still working on the clem you wanted so your wish shall be granted on this when that roots. It's a large clump. I have the variegated one as well but was covered with dead leaves so struggling. I have moved that one to a better place.
I thought it was some kind of succulent.

Lamb's Tail (Umbilicus oppositifolius) is a neat looking plant!

Edited to say: Same plant, Chiastophyllum is a synonym.

Apologies for any confusion..........Chiastophyllum oppositifolium ....common name Lamb's tail is the old name!
valleylynn is correct..it should now be called Umbilicus oppositifolius...common name Lamb's tail.

It is still widely listed under its synonym Chiastophyllum oppositifolium.

That is what I love about the plant database here at NGA. You can search even with an old name and the entry will come up. Makes it so easy to find the plant.
Many plants are currently being sold in the trade under old and incorrect names. For me it makes it easy to learn the new and correct names, using the database here.
