Do I really need individual pictures? I took them in groups.

Here is one individual one I received. It had some leaves broken off but I just wanted to now what it was.

I have more to post if the forum doesn't mind groupings

Sorry not much knowledge of succulents name, most of the time, I am quite satisfied just having them NOID. My suggestion for these could be Echeveria (could be E. runyonii topsy turvy but I cant see much of the pict) {back-reddish pot}. A type of Aizoaceae could be Corpuscularia Lehmannii {back-black pot}. and a type of Sedum hybrid {front}. Let see others opinion. Smiling

When you ordered them, did you order by name and they just didn't come labeled? If so, you could provide the names you did order to narrow things down. Or did you just order random succulents? I've never done much mail ordering of plants so am a bit confused how one would get a slew of unlabeled plants. Perhaps it's not unusual though?

Hi & welcome!

This could be Sedum clavatum, or something else.
Sedum (Sedum clavatum)

It can take a while, years sometimes, to ID mystery succulents. The good news is that specific ID is not necessary to cultivate them. Their appearance will let you know if they are getting enough light, and letting soil dry significantly before adding more water is the general convention for moisture.

I agree that knowing how a plant(s) came into ones' possession can be a possible clue in some ID investigations.

Is there a way of knowing - without killing them - whether they are cold hardy or not?

Not really if the ID is uncertain. "Succulents" encompasses vast numbers of wildly different plants from most corners of the world. Some Sedums are some of the hardiest plants around, but plants of other genera aren't going to put up with frozen conditions, at least not if they include moisture at the same time, and without much warmer temps during the daytime. A few hours of frost is a world away from places where there is snow cover and entire months without temps above freezing. The soil in a pot can freeze in a few hours, that would be an added degree of risk.

Since they are usually of very small stature, they can often fit on a windowsill so they can get plenty of sun, especially of concern during winter at higher latitudes where/when days are so much shorter.

ETA: I just actually read the subject line, so nevermind what I said before about how did they come into your possession. If the company from which you ordered has a website, it should be somewhat easy to find them if they have a list of what they grow.
