Hi,

I picked up this succulent at a stall in France that was selling mostly Sempervivum. Sadly now that I have got it all the way home it looks pretty sad! Can anyone ID it from its dying body? I would like to get a new one.

Thanks,
Sam

Possible Sedum but a species name to suggest will not come to mind.

Hello SpamAllan, I wish I can help you with the id, it is rather hard when there is no tag. But if it is a sempervivum, be aware that they are considered alpine succulents, so they naturally languish in direct summer heat. But they may still perk up once the cooler weather returns. In the meantime, try to make your media grittier, position in a cool shade area in your garden during summer and water early in the day at the media directly, not on the rosettes.
