13 Aeonium 'Kiwi' - This succulent forms rosettes of brilliantly colored fleshy, spoon-shaped leaves.
14 Aeoniums are very easy to root. You just cut the rosettes from the 'mother' plant, allow the cut stem end to dry for a day or two, and then place the stem into moist growing medium.
15 This is an echevaria, known as agavoides. This is a large group of Mexican origin that varies in shape, size, and color - from green, to blue, red, purple, or pink.
16 Echeveria agavoides with flower stalk - This species, in full sun, blushes red.
17 Echeveria prolifica - With their silvery-green leaves, these miniature rosettes form an excellent ground cover.

35 Haworthia coarctata - This plant forms clumps of tough, leafy columns, which are normally dark green, turning a rich purple in full sun.
