I photographed these on two different locations on different days. Though the general shape is similar, there is a difference in the surface texture (the one photographed earlier on a dry day is hairier). I thought these belong to spurge family but I am most likely wrong. Please advise.

these are naturally growing i take..
first two are a sedum, one of the himalalyan stonecrop.. species name eludes me right now..

may be sedum sedoides , but I may be off base… its supposed to have some hairy leaves … but best diagnosis is after it flowers…

and last three are Sempervium..  of the hens and chicks group of succulents..

and these grow in colder mountainous climes

Some echeverias can be hirsute also but they grow in mexico
Just like in sedum’s case best diagnosis is from the flowering stalk and its shape etc and flowers themselves.
hope it helps
and my be … may have more details

hope to hear from them


… is right in saying that flowering is the exact stage to determine exact ID.

The first one to me is Sedum rosulatum and second one (with hairy leaves) is an Androsace species. But the same thing I will reiterate here- flowering is the exact stage to determine exact ID.

And flowering is not too distant, will be visible with in 45-60 days (late April-May).

Most often taxonomists are accustomed to recognize plants in flowering only. There are taxonomists which recognize plants only when it is in the form of herbarium specimens. Fortunately, we have taxonomists of all types in the group. I am sure these plants will be identified once in flowering.


Thank you … for your advice. I will wait for these to flower and post once again for ID confirmation.


Thank You … Androsace must be put in my head now, its one group I always forget since it did not really get into houseplants lists I never bought one and cared for one etc. etc.

and thanks for mentioning the upcoming flowering days

So … now you have a job to do, ha ha…

thanks for showing these …in their natural habitat..

PS looking forward to the hot and humid days of their flowering


if the last three are a primula, the stems should turn reddish under the rosettes..
see if you can periodially check on them like every 10 days or so…
if alpine primula (androsace) its not a succulent and will give us typical primula like flowers…
and search for a different spelling:

Sedum rosulata and not  sedum…..tum..
… you have given me a lot to remember and search and led me to id one of my dubia pictures from 2007


Thank you … Will report soon.


I found the first sample having red stems with a cluster of buds today and took some pictures. Does this confirm it as Sedum rosulata?
Curious about the second sample with hairy leaves, I went back to check but found no change and no flowers. 
Here are the results for your advice.

Thanks

the flower buds

let them open and show their faces

gurcharanji had shown a case the base did not turn red on flowering

Now I am stumped

It should be Sinocassula indica


Please also check for Rosularia adenotricha (=Sedum adenotrichum) of Crassulaceae.

With flowers it does not looks like Sedum rosulatum as earlier suggested by me.

Thank you … for your advise. I apologise for not responding earlier.


I found one open flower today and took a picture to help with the ID. I think … was correct in suggesting Rosularia adenotricha. Please advise. 1 image.


well

hairy sepal

who knew

a sedum with hairy leaves and sepals

white flowers on a red stalk

must rremember this

… pictures are (see link given by …) very nice too, shows the hairy sepal.

Your picture shows hairy sepal ..
so this must be the hairy sepal sedum as FOI says/Alok says
lets wait for Dr Rawat for confirmation.
thanks … for very diligent follow up.


Beautiful pictures!

It is Rosularia adenotricha (Crassulaceae).
