New succulent plants!

Well, this evening I was over at Home Depot, and I actually found one of those orange sun bromeliads...for 35 dollars! They only had one, and it had a pup attached too, but it was fairly beat up, so I decided to wait and buy some online. I can buy smaller plants in much better condition, and for a lot less money too! As I was leaving, I HAD to pass by the succulents, and upon close inspection I found these 3 rather unique (to me) plants. I potted them up together for now. I think they look nice together in this big clay pot I had.

The little one in the front is called Sempervivum Rebellum Mohogany of "Live Forever"
The purple one is Aeonium arboreum atropurpureum 'Zwartkop'cristata
The taller green on is called Sedum praeltum cristata

You can see that the cristatas are on thick bases and on the side where the growth comes out I got photos of these sides, and you can see how full and bushy they are. They remind me of stegosaurus dinosaurs, with the plates down their backs!! I definately could not resist them. I wonder how they will grow, what they will do as far as size, and growth pattern. That is the beauty of succulents...they are just plain fun!

Pretty! I've never seen that kind of Sedum before. They are all so neat looking.

I always like the light, lime green with burduny. They pot well together.

You have some beauties! I would have passed up the $35 one too. that just means there are some other glorious ones waiting for you. said...

Wow, 35.00 sounds a little pricey. I found a site on ebay that was selling 20 different varieties of succulants for the same price.
It's worth shopping around.

Great little succulents. Thank you for visiting my blog. My first succulent purchase I think really made me an addict to them. I keep on searching for more online and looking at them at work when I never used to. I might just have to start selling them at plant sales and such just so I can have an excuse to have many of them. I went to our city Botanical Gardens a few days ago and saw these great I think they are succulents or cactis that are haworthia reinwardtii. They look so very unique and they can be grown from seeds too.
