Aeonium 'White Fringe'

We first purchased this plant (actually, its ancestors) about 40 years ago and this is the name it had. I haven't been able to find such a name in the literature since then. But it's a neat plant. It doesn't get very large and is easy to grow. But it has one other characteristic which gives it a certain degree of uniqueness: Its leaves are sticky. Quite sticky. Obviously we like it or we wouldn't have had it around for 40 years!
We have an eventful weekend coming up. We're going back to the Oregon State Fair again, this time to watch the Peruvian Paso Horses. Then on Monday (Labor Day in the U.S.) we're going to a horse ranch in Northern Idaho. I'll still try to get a few posts up.
