Could anyone tell me what this plant is please?




A close up of the leaves would be helpful - at the moment, its reminding me of a suffering Crassula ovata...

Is this a better view?

Yes, better, and it still looks like Crassula ovata, which is actually a houseplant and should have dark green leaves (when indoors). Has it always been outdoors, even in very cold winters? Because if it has, it can't be what I think it is...

Hopefully someone else will confirm or deny, or offer a different ID

That's exactly what it looks like to me, too. I have one growing indoors at the moment but, as Bamboo says, it is a darker green.

It was on my bosses porch which is open, I've now got it on my decking.
Thanks for your help ?

In that case, if you want to ensure it survives, you'll need to give it some protection in winter - greenhouse, porch, whatever.
