It's a favorite bloomer in the late autumn -- Crassula mesembryanthemopsis.

Hope you like it.

Yeah that's very nice and I can see why it's a favorite bloomer.

I have this Crassula ID'd as "C. mesembryanthemopsis" but have a feeling it is a hybrid, possibly C. 'Morgan's Beauty' because it really doesn't look like any pictures I've seen of C. mesembryanthemopsis. Any help with what it is? Thanks.

Bikerdoc, I saw your post in the C&S forum. Don't know if your flowers got any more pink coloring to them than the pix you had posted. Still think it looks like a cross of Crassula mesembryanthemopsis x C. falcata.

Unfortunately, my friend, Al, who posted this in 1906, passed away a couple years ago. He might've been able to shed some light on it for you. A man with a fabulous collection & wealth of knowledge about succulents, also a great photographer...gone. RIP, Al!
