It's a Manfreda, possibly Manfreda (Manfreda undulata 'Chocolate Chips')

Thanks, Sue! Thumbs up Do you know what the tall one is? Is that some kind of sempervivum or sedum on the bottom?

Yes, looks like sedum at the bottom and some kind of elongated Kalanchoe. Maybe Flapjacks (Kalanchoe luciae)
or Paddle Plant (Kalanchoe luciae subsp. luciae)

Thanks, Sue! Thank You! That's interesting about the Kalanchoe--I'm not familiar with that kind! The sedum is very pretty. I wonder what kind it is?

It is a pretty one, with serrated edges it looks like. Thumbs up
