I am in love with all and they are Z 9 - 11. How do I keep them over winter in Z 6a and what soil do I use?

All I know about those is that they have to come in before it freezes.

The Aeonium (dark leaved succulent) does well indoors for winter. Just have to watch for mealy bug.
I'm not sure what the blue/green leafed succulent is, but it would do well indoors for winter as well.
I have kept them under my deck roof for winter in zone 8 and they did very well, but your zone 6 is to cold for that.

The other low growing bright green plant looks like a sedum, can't tell from this photo. If it is, it will do well outdoors with good drainage, over the winter.

Awesome plants. Thumbs up

The gift pot isnt draining so I am going to pot the plants and keep them over winter inside.Then I can add the whole potted plant to a combo for the deck next summer.

I also live in Zone 6 and have quite a few of these. I bring them indoors and put inside in a sunny window. I use a cactus soil and water about 2 times a month. Use your discretion. I usually have fairly good results. Big Grin
