I've been wondering for years what this plant on my rockery was called Anyone got any ideas? (Sorry about the slightly blurred image. I took it yesterday afternoon - July 25th.)




It could be Gypsophila repens. There are a number of named forms available but they all look pretty similar.

Bulbaholic - many thanks for the extremely quick response. I'll check it out when I can.

It looks like Crassula sarcocaulis to me. It's a succulent that makes a small "bushy" plant.

Could be either, but the deciding factor is whether those leaves are succulent - if they are, it's what Beattie said, if they're not, its as Bulbaholic mentions, probably G. repens 'rosea', but that one usually flowers early spring, not now.
