my money is on a Echeveria, but which one in particular I am not sure - the structure of the flower and leaf arrangement seem similar

Thanks Michael
At least I'm a bit nearer than before, several branches have broken already and I'm trying to see if they grow

I am certain now it is Echeveria probably elegans.I realised just after I had sent the message that it was a Sedum.
