Help needed to ID a Tunisian succulent cutting

This beauty was passed on to me by a lovely lady who left the UK and couldn't take it with her.

She had grown it from a tiny cutting. I took it on a few months ago and it has grown quite a bit larger, with new 'babies' sprouting from the top.

Has anyone any idea what it may be? I'd love to know its name. My little girl calls it Tunis image

I was recently at Myddelton House & Gardens, Enfield,which has a brilliant succulents house - I'm wondering if they'd know...

Thanks all image

    It looks like some kind of Sedum.   Actually they all look like some sort of sedum. image

    Or a crassula?

  • Hi there 

    I have Tunisian roots and I think it's a reflexum! 

    It doesn't need much but it does look nice in a rockery. ? 

  • Thanks! 

    It's doing well with virtually no help from me image

    I try to always give it as little water as I can, and with succulent feed now and again.

    Do you think it would survive London outdoors, in Winter? Mine is indoors.

    Take  some cuttings and try them outside keeping  the originals out of frosts etc.

    To me they do look too fleshy to deal with frost.  No scientific reason other than their appearance.

    I may be wrong, but it might be a Crassula indeed, C. tetragona.

  • Thanks! I love a good plant ID, particularly when they come without any label attached image
