If it doesn't die first, that Aeonium 'Zwartkop' will go right there once the rootball gets a little stronger.

What is the plant in photo #5 with the great foliage?

BTW, while I was geting ready of work Sunday, an old episode of Paul James' show was on HGTV. He happened to be visiting Mari and Andrew's garden in Seattle. I did a double take knowing I had seen some of the images before. It took my brain a day to process it and come up with an answer from your blog.

Hey Chuck! You're Aeonium looks great! Will send flourishing thoughts its way ;-) I miss my dearly departed...The last photo of arctotis ('Pink Sugar'?) is yummy. I think I killed one of those, too. LOL. (Sorry - Must keep my humor about these maudlin things).

I was going to ask it, but Les beat me to it! I have no idea what that plant is, but I love the fuzzy purple hairs on the stems--and the way the leaves look like velvet. Something in the nightshade family?

Hi Chuck, we also will send good growing thoughts to the Aeonium. Such a brilliant plant, color, leaf shape, shiny, form, it has everything. Those pinkies in the last image are very enticing. My Cobaea is blooming! :-)

That's Senecio cristobalensis, an aster from Central and South American tropical mountaintops.

(That one I actually named in Flickr, so you can scroll over the picture to get the name. I need to do that more regularly.)

Aeonium 'Schwarzkopf' is ...has been ... and will continue to be one of my all time favorite plants.
Trendy babes will come and go, but this is one terrific plant. Designing with it is a delight. Gazing upon one solitary specimen isolated a pot - equally fulfilling!
