If you can snag a tiny rosette they are very easy to root and grow like mad with sun and water. It is a beautiful plant, isn't it? – Tim Quinn Dec 13 '12 at 3:23

Its a type of Aeonium. Maybe Aeonium canariense. There are a lot of hybrids of aeonium so it might be difficult to pin it down exactly. Canariense's leaves get tinged with red in bright sunlight.
