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..
Have a great day!

    FOUND IT! :)


Spurge 'Tiny Tim' (Euphorbia x martinii)

Enjoy your new plant!

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

    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.

    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!
