I took some pictures at one of my favorite nurseries. Lots of lovely plants. The down side is that most are not labeled. ID help would be appreciated.......

Nice looking plants, Paul. The bottom are Lithops and friends, of course. Several different varieties there.

Sixth from the top with the carnucles is, I believe, either Echeveria 'Etna' or another hybrid of Ech. gibbiflora.

Ruffled Ech might be E. 'Ruffles' (lol).

Red flowers are on Euphorbia milii of some variety, perhaps.

I believe the top photo is Ech. hybrid 'Topsy Turvy'.

Cacti aren't really my thing but I do like them. Thumbs up

Well, maybe more accurately Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy'.

Love the Lithops. Mine are "moulting" now too.

BTW - what is the name of this nursery?

The name of the nursery is appropriate...Cactus and Tropicals....it used to be Cactus and Succulents. They have a branch in Salt Lake City and one in Draper, Utah. They are a top end business. I'm glad we have some great independent nurseries here

I stopped by my tiny mom and pop herb greenhouse and look what she had for $3.50 each in 4" containers.
