Identify This Plant!

Monday, July 14, 2014

Mom bought this from a greenhouse and the staff member couldn't tell her what it was:

Close up of the flower or whatever it is lol:

I am guessing its nor for zone 3, but not knowing what it is means we don't know if it likes sun or not and how much to water it..
Thanks!
Have a great day!

    Spurge 'Tiny Tim' (Euphorbia x martinii)


    Enjoy your new plant!

    (Like most succulents, the more sun it gets the redder the leaves will be.)

    Very lovely but you are asking the wrong person.

    I'm certain this is some variety of cold weather succulent (Sempervivum)... a 'spurge' is a type of succulent... while not able to find the exact one, I found many that look similar.

    Here is how to care for them:

    Here's a local resource that may be able to tell you specifically what it is:

    If I'm correct, succulents of any sort are very forgiving, and will grow under any conditions!

    I tried googling it, also! No luck! It sure is pretty, though. Reminds me of a succulent of some type.

    HUGS!

    emoticon Whatever it is, it really is pretty. You may have to just try Trial and Error, watching it closely to see what it prefers. I would almost be tempted to go back to the Greenhouse to see if a different Employee could tell you what it is. -- Or try a different Greenhouse or Gardening Center, if that is an option?

    I'm no help with the type of plant it is. I have a Phd from Edmonton living next door to me, buy he's never home, always working. He would probably know. I don't remember seeing a plant like that before, either. It is a gorgeous plant.

    It almost looks like the leaves have the texture of a Seedum plant. Are they thick like that? Interesting! Let us know if you find out, ok? I'd love to know for sure!
