    The plant in the 3rd picture was originally a bright pale green, but has been tinged with red as shown for a while now. Not sure if this means it's unhealthy...?

    The 4th one I'm pretty sure is a Scilla violacea - confirm please?

    Excellent - thank you, Lila!

    For the Echeveria, I looked at some pictures, and the best candidates I could find for the variety was E. pulidonis, or maybe E. derenbergii. But I noticed that all of the Echeveria pictures showed very smooth edged leaves. Mine has very small teeth/spines along the very edges of each leaf - probably not very easy to tell from the picture on the computer screen. Do you think this would still be an Echeveria, or might it be something else?

    nice group of plants!

    yes, you can see the teeth in the pics - they don't go all the way around the edges of the leaves, it seems.

    it could be an echeveria. or it could be a cross of echeveria with some type of aloe or a even sempervivum. i'm going to keep track of this thread to see if anyone CAN id it...i really like and would love to add it to my collection!

    I hesitate to disagree with Lila, but I think number 2 is Aeonium haworthii, not an Echeveria.

    A. haworthii looks like a match - found some images showing the leaves with teeth like mine.

    Thanks so much!
