The pink blooms belong to the plant with the angular leaves. I have no idea of the name. Would really like to ID it. Will it set seed? Thank You! in advance.

Your pretty pink blooms are on a crassula. It could be Morgan's Beauty of Springtime. Maybe @Tarev can help ID it for you.

That is a very pretty plant Mary! It sure is a blooming Crassula plant. It is similar to my Crassula Springtime, but somehow your blooms are not as deeper pink as the ones I have. Don't know if light levels affects it. Or your plant could be Crassula rupestris.

Thank You! @Deebie & @tarev You are the best! Hurray!

I was so surprised to see the blooms. It is a noid plant originally purchased at the grocery store. A piece broke off and I just planted it in this pot that contains another plant and a small lime tree. We had a very mild winter. Don't know if that prompted the blooming or something else.
Anyway, I'm loving it! ❤️ Now, thanks to you, I know it is a Crassula!

It is easy to propagate that plant, after blooming, just cut off a few segments from the top, callus, and stick it back to soil. I prefer to do this during early Spring, or during mid Fall, just as temps start to go cooler once more.

You may have to keep your plant in some shade, my garden thankfully gets natural shade from our city trees when leafed out and in the mornings our house shades them too, so it does not get too much of our excessive heat here during the long, dry months.

Thank you, Tarev. Thumbs up Think I will start a new plant in a hanging pot in a tree when it gets warmer. Good shade source in the desert.😎
