Angie, Xerophyta retinervis is usually sold by succulent nurseries but it needs al lot of water in summer, letting it almost dry between a watering and the other. It is not to treat as a real succulent!

North of Italy
where summers are hot and dry and winters are cold and wet

Amazing how much it looks like our grass trees, but more definitely so different flower-wise.  You learn something new every day!!  :o  I would rather like to grow that myself..... quite a fascinating plant.
