Does anyone know the name of this plant?

Well, I finally had to ask since here is where all the smart brains are:-)

A good friend who fought in World War 1 had given me this baby from a mother plant he got from the Mediterranean Sea while he was there. The mother plant is beautiful and I hope that mine turns out the same. The leaves are so soft, they almost feel like silk.

He told me it was in the succulent family, but not sure. If I had only written the name down when he told me. He is no longer around:-(




Thank you

Hi Mike,

I posted on the C&S thread about this. I wanted to suggest if you don't already know of it, there's a GW forum called 'Name That Plant' which is good for mystery IDs like this, maybe give that a shot.
