Is it called London Pride ( (Saxifraga)?

11/09/2012 at 19:59

Is it a variety of aeonium http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeonium

Thank you - I'll go and look those suggestions up.

Not London,s Pride. Some sort of sedum, the type that you can grow on a roof

No, don't think they're houseleeks - sempervivum http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sempervivum, which I used to have a collection of -  the 'leaves' don't look right for them to me.

I thought they looked  more like http://www.thesucculentgarden.com.au/echev.html echevaria, but still not looking quite right to me - then I thought they looked more like a type of Aeonium http://www.thesucculentgarden.com.au/aeoni.html#thumb

Definately a saxifrage called London Pride which reminds me i dont know what has happened to mine.

I don't think it's London Pride http://apps.rhs.org.uk/plantselector/plant?plantid=1798 as the leaf edges are smooth whereas the saxifraga has tooth-like indentations.

it looks like a succulent to me.. but that is all i say aaout it..

12/09/2012 at 18:39

Thanks everyone and to flowering rose for taking the time to come back - i think I'll settle for Aeonium !

12/09/2012 at 21:32

Aeonium canariense - not hardy, you'll have to pot upand bring indoors before frost strikes!

12/09/2012 at 21:39

Thought so!   Lovely!  Wish we had room to overwinter some - especially the black one
