The large nursery here is having their first time ever sale on annual plants, and for some reason had a whole table of succulents at 50% off, so of course I had to take advantage, right?!? clap thumbup They will all be coming inside for the winter.

This planter actually has 4 plants - one is hidden in the back.
The pots were a bit larger than the ceramic pot openings, but I like the look of the blue peaking out.

Second pic on the right - I've got the variegated form. It's smaller than yours and the trunk isn't as dark. Yours is beautiful, so are the others!


May God bless the WHOLE world!

Thanks Penny and Margaret!

oh, Margaret - I was hoping that YOU would be able to tell ME what it is - there weren't any tags with most of the succulents, and the young girl didn't know a few of them! Only the one in the first picture on top had a tag!

The one beside it and the bottom one look like various crassula:

The ones on top are in the same family and could be crassula or echiveria: http://www.desert-tropicals.com/Plants/Crassulaceae/Echeveria.html
or something else. http://www.crassulaceae.com/crassulaceae/crashome_en.asp
Happy hunting!


May God bless the WHOLE world!
