My neighbor has some of it blooming in his yard and poking through our shared fence, so he told me to take as many cuttings as I like. It's fuzzy, like a peach. Any ideas what it is?

I think I figured it out! I believe it's a echeveria pulvinata "ruby".

Don't you need a possitive ID first?

I believe they will approve your submission. Go to the site talk forum, down near the bottom of the forum list and ask. This is where to go with website questions such as yours. Lovely plant.

It is a hairy Echeveria from the same group, but I'm not sure it's pulvinata or Ruby. The leaves are a different shape from Ruby, rather concave on top in comparison, and they should be red around the edges in summer sun or winter cold. I'm not saying it's not the aforementioned plants, but maybe the best place to leave it in the database here would be the generic Echeveria entry until you are sure of its identity. There are quite a few variations on the hairy Echeverias and my experience is not good enough to tell them all apart. Smiling
