I purchased this little basket of succulents on clearance at Lowes a few weeks ago ... the plants were half-dead, what soil was left was extremely dry and the plants did not look good at all. I figured I'd just throw them out because it was the basket that I was interested in. I'm assuming it was on the clearance rack because of the condition of the plants and also because the basket had globs of glue all around both sides that looked as though some decorations had fallen off. Anyway, it was cheap ($4.50) so I brought it home and hung it from a hook on the deck and left it for later We've had rain lately which seems to have perked those plants up and they are looking pretty good to me now, so my plan is to repot each little plant into an individual pot because I want the basket for another use. Thanks in advance for any help in identities of these three plants!

One side containing two plants (Echeveria? .... and perhaps Sedum morganianum (Burro's Tail) or Sedum rubrontinctum (Pork and Beans)?

The other side I first thought was maybe a Kalanchoe but Echeveria was suggested and I found pics of those with fuzzy leaves too but I'm just really bad at comparing photo's for identity so I was hoping some of you knowledgeable succulent growers might be able to help.

Hi Lin,

The light green one, trailing, looks like Sedum morganianum. Sorry no id for the one beside it.

The last one, somehow reminds me of Echeveria 'Doris Taylor' because of the fuzziness of the leaves, but the shape of the leaf is a bit pointed, so I maybe wrong. Safe to say some type of Echeveria. But if the leaf edges start to show/develop reddish spots, who knows, it might be a Kalanchoe. Shrug!

Thanks tarev! I thought the one was possibly Sedum morganianum and someone else here thought so too but I still wasn't sure. Hopefully others will chime in with suggestions on that one as well as the others.

The plant next to the possible sedum morganianum looks like it could be an Echeveria 'Chroma'?



The other brought to my mind Kalanchoe too but while scanning images on Google, it could be or related to this...it has different monikers of either Crassula pubescens or Echevera pubescens or Cotyledon pubescens; all very confusing.

Bev: Thanks, that one in the database photo sure looks a lot like the one in my basket. I'm going to check out the images at the link you provided.

Echeveria coccinea sure looks like a close match!


edited to add: E. pubescens is a synonym.
