Anyone any ideas on this plant. Taken in the Mediterranean Biosphere at the Eden project, but foolishly forgot to make a note of the name.

Aeonium.... Not sure what model!

Aeonium arboreum - either 'atropurpurea' or 'zwartkopf' though the latter is a lot darker in full sun during the warmer months.  At this time of year I'd say atropurpurea but the light in the Mediterranean biome at Eden isn't as good as you might expect and Zwartkopf does go quite pale - almost green - in the winter (well, mine does and I grow it outside in my Plymouth garden).

Thank you gentlemen. Knew it wouldn't take long. It's like having Alan Titchmarsh on speed dial.
