    Unless I am mistaken, this is an Aeonium species (fairly closely related to Sempervium, i.e. "hen and chicks") The common name is "house leek".

    I agree with Tamlin. Although, hens and chicks, do flower and after the plant dies, leaving the chicks to carry on :-)

    I just remembered, I have a plant just like that, only the flowers were yellow! It flowered about 3 months ago. Lets hope for another one soon. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img] Then I can get pics and get it identified.
