David they had a table full of them all that size and majority in bloom at $6.99. But all were Zebrina...was hoping for variety. Now I have 2 zebrina and an unknown hope it blooms someday so I can ID.

Marguerite...not sure that campion IS a succulent but it was with sedums and so pretty. They said it could be grown as indoor plant....so for $4.99 it was mine!

DavidL,
Most of my Huernia came from mail order. Miles To Go has a hugh selection for only $4 each. Order came and I was completely satisfied. Look them up on line.
Paula,
What a fine.

VERY nice finds, good for you!

I don't know what that 2nd one is (Sedum of some kind), but I love its texture.

Yes pirate_girl, it was un labeled. But reminded me of a very tiny burros tail.

Thanks Stan, I HAVE been perusing Miles for awhile. I "CAN" resist ordering but when a plant is LOOKING at me that's a whole nother story! LMAO

In Oct the Quality Gardens is hosting a Succulent Book Centerpiece Class...which I am going to call and find out about.

Here is a link that might be useful: Quality Gardens Valencia PA

Thanks Stush. But they don't ship to Canada unfortunately :(. Some sites do, but at a crazy price! Hopefully one day they will turn out in local nursery, or Valley Succulent, which is the B.C. based site that I've got a few plants from

DavidL,
Next year I should be coming out of my ears with Hurnia plants. I just put my second order in at Miles to Go. I'll get in toutch with you then or better yet you with me. My memory is not what it used to be.
