Echeveria is what you have there...they is quite a variety..some flowers are like little bells, others a bit more open..the colors can vary too. I have one that is a lovely creamy color. This one is one of my bell blooms. It's an memorial plant. My aunt bought it for me when my dad passed on and now she is too. Needless to say it's very precious to me.

One way to display them is in a wreath form...they'll lovely! Oh one more thing...the hummers love these flowers..they last a long time.

Thank you for the pics. The first one looks like a succulent that I know as 'cobweb'. Is that what it is? I tried growing it in our zone 4/5. It didn't come back.

Yes, it is a cob web and my first try was not successful...I doted over it too much...I watered it like every 3 weeks and put it in bright light..like most real succulents..they burn in full sun.

Today was a perfect day in Wisconsin for visiting a local garden center, 19 degrees and a light snow. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr! I bought a new succulent. A steel blue chalky color. I think it is called Senecio Vitalis 'Blue Chalk'. I planted it in a stainless steel collander. I have been collecting collanders from thrift shops and will be featuring my special succulents in these planters. I will take a picture once it gets bigger. I thank someone here of GG for informing me about google images. I now have it as one of my favorites.

Oh, I like that colander idea, especially with all my dry guys 'n biters.

Does your Senecio look like the one in the middle? I've had this one for a few years...I should divide it and get some more. The flowers are interesting, can't find the picture of it.

Post some of your colander planters, I would love to see them

thanks Lark...I got it from Collections Etc when everything was still 14.99. I got so many wonderful garden solar lamps from them.

a question...where did you get the awesome rack for your pencil plant...it sort of looks like an upside down tomato cage, but sturdier. Love your creativity in planters..giving me some ideas (-_^)
