I was wondering what the attached picture is of. I am assuming some sort of succulent. Thanks!

Looks very much like one of the numerous kinds of Eupphorbia, possibly E. characias

Definitely Euphorbia, closer to E. myrsinites than characias though...

Not a succulent certainly a Euphorbia but wouldn't like to go further than that!

Maybe Euphorbia martinii?

A beautiful Euphorbia whichever variety!

Maybe a slightly stretched Senecio galpinii? Dcbritboy, does it ever have orange, thistle-like blooms on it?

So I got something very close to what ever one was suggesting and it is growing better than I even hoped (in a pot that nothing else has been successful). Thank you all for your input!

I just had an attack of memory! Maybe it is a Calandrinia grandiflora?

Ooh, yea, I think you've got it Tug - I've never heard of it, but having looked at pics on line, I'd say you're spot on - nice pics of foliage and flowers in the link below

'Attack of memory' is funny;-)) but it ain't your memory storage banks going blank, its that blasted internal filing clerk that just can't retrieve it quickly enough, or even find it for a week or so... Sadly, the medical explanation is a lot more depressing, so I prefer to curse the imaginary filing clerk than think about dead neurons...

I've tried to grow it here, but it never survived the summer monsoon--I suspect the 35ยบ C nights. Does great in coastal California, though.

How do I say thanks?
