Paul this is such a beautiful planting of succulents. I would love to know what the plant is below Aeonium 'Zwartkop'?

I do know the lovely pink one is Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg.

Love the stone trough. Lovey dubby

My problem Lynn is that I know very little about succulents. I would love to ID each plant in the picture and debate whether to post a picture with only limited IDs. Now I can add the name of the Echeveria 'Perle von Nurnberg'. Thanks. The planter was so pleasing to the eye that I took a number of shots. I also took a number of pictures of other succulent planters and always wonder rather to add them to the Containers Forum or the Cactus and Succulents Forum.

All those shots are beautiful Paul. You can add any of your container photos in the Container Forum, or the Cactus and Succulents Forum. They are inspiration to all of us. Lovey dubby

A lovely and very healthy looking combination! Just curious, can you leave this container outside all winter in your climate?

I wondered about that. We don't get freezes here but the dampness would kill many succulents. I have to keep mine under the eaves where they won't get rained on and still have enough air circulation.

Those are really luscious looking plants.

The plant just below the dark Aeonium in the picture (with the bumps and tiny leaves) is a Euphorbia flanaganii crest.

Paul, are you sure the plant to the left of the pink Echeveria is a Crassula? It looks like Sedum pachyphyllum to me, but I'm not familiar with Ogre Ears.
