adding to succulent collection

 Four new succulents to add to my collection, which is fast becoming an obsession.  Im a little nervous that if we dont hurry up and get to our rural property my backyard is going to become choc a block with little pots of these things.
If anyone with succulent knowledge is looking at this post, I would love some feedback as to what they are.  The place I bought them only had succulent written on the label, thought I would be satisfied with that, but unfortunately I am finding myself trawling the internet with my little "succulent" on my lap searching for answers.

Echeveria?
 Aeonium domestica variagata
 Echeveria?
 Aloe dorian black?
Dad's orchid - was repotted last year, this year very dissapointing, only produced one miserly flower and I had to get under the plant to take the shot, hence the roof in the background.  When it eventually does decide to flower it will be beautiful as its such a pretty colour.

  1. Your little succulents look lovely but I have no more idea than you do on their names. The Orchid looks beautiful even if it is one lonely flower.

  2. Hi Becc. I saw your comment on berniesgarden and thought I'd come over and take a look at your blog. I actually quite like your orchid photo, very artistic and such a pretty little thing.

  3. Hi! The first succulent is an echeveria. But I don't know the exact name. The second one I think is Aeonium percarneum 'Kiwi'. The 3rd one does look like an echeveria. And I think you are correct on the aloe! Really nice one matter of fact.

  5. No succulent knowledge here. I have a few but have never tried to identify them. They are great low maintenance plants. I like the shot of the roof in the background. Cool shot.

  6. I cannot help you with the name but I too am getting interested in succlents. I have a big plan for some on the front porch next year. I have two waiting for the project but have no idea their names. Just thought they were neat looking and I picked them up... LOL...

  8. They all are pretty! How lucky you are to be able to have succulents outdoors all year around! I need to bring mine inside for the winter. And they don't like our dry air and artificial light.
