Thank you. Those plants went into the ground about 2-3 years ago. They were in 8 or 10 inch pots at the time. The Dudleyas were about a year old (brittonii) or 2-3 years old (virens). The Euphorbias 3-4 years old, the Aeoniums 1-2 years old. Here is a closeup of the Sunburst in bud.

And here is another part of that garden with a variety of Aeoniums that we planted a year earlier. The Aeoniums require zero water once they are established so they are pretty popular for landscaping locally.

This has been an unusually dry year (half our normal rainfall) so most of the Aeoniums are not flowering much.
