    The small white blooming plant in the first picture is Sedum, I believe. If the flowers had five petals I would say Sedum album ;-) . The big plant in the background is Echeveria.

    On the second picture are mostly Echeverias (the one with carunculated leaves and others) with Aeonium at the top, probably Aeonium arboreum. Sorry I can't say what is the little succulent with red flowers there.

    Thank you.
    I think I am most curious about one with red flowers:( What family do you think it belongs?

    and the dark-leaved is an Aeonium - but a bit too fine-leaved to be A. arboreum.

    Sorry for the tardy response. After some research (I am not a botanist) on the Net I am pretty sure it is in Crassulaceae. According to Wiki the family includes approximately 1,200-1,500 species and 34 genera, so . . .

    May be you could ask at VanDusen , they should know what they have?
    And let us know what exactly is it, too.

    It's kind of an ornamental planting. I'm guessing they just got a bunch of succulents that weren't even named and planted them up.

    For the red flowers, how about something like Echeveria 'Black Prince'?
