    @tony williams2 Maybe an Echeveria not something I grow. I have looked after them in a greenhouse before. I wouldn't water it until spring let it dry out.

  • Thanks for that. I was told it was rose of the desert , but can't trace it.

    It isn't a desert rose cactus, that looks more like a little tree with a trunk, but I don't know what it is.

    Looks like an indoor type sedum, something like Sedum morganianum.

    Possibly Graptopetalum, one of the Crassulas.

    Looks similar to Echeveria derenbergii – Painted Lady Succulent (especially pic #2, mature plant, egg-shaped)

    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    @tony williams2 This is still a puzzle to me just studied an Echeveria today and the leaves are more flat also there is a tip at the end of each leaf. Perhaps they vary? I find all succulents and cacti difficult. Not entirely sure you have a complete answer always important to get a correct ID so that any future plants that are taken from it are also correctly named.
    I think the worst thing is to just take a guess better it remains a mystery.

    @wild edges grows a lot of succulents/echeverias etc. He might be able to help. It's a massive group of plants  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    It's not one I recognise but there are so many hybrids around now that it could be anything really. My wild guess would be a pachyveria of some kind https://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=147&aaID=2 When it flowers you'll know more.
