Re: id questions

I see that Marge has already answered your question.  But had to remark that
when I read your message - b4 looking at the pics  - I was a bit confused
because there IS an Opium Poppy called Hens and Chicks and thought you meant
that because you went on to discussing poppies.

Still, I was quite surprised you hadn't seen these little succulents before.
Easy as pie and quite captivating once you get interested.  I was looking
for a supplier last year to add some to our collection at the CES gardens
and found whole nurseries devoted to these plants.
