Succlents in the Harvest moon.

I am not sure what kind of succulent this is. My dad has had it for years. It has been neglected most of those years, but I took special interest in it this year. This was the first year it bloomed. The blooms are about to fade away, and I wanted to capture it's beauty before winter arrived.

Nice shot. I am fairly sure it is a Echeveria, but which one , I do not know.

Thanks. I'm not sure either. I was surprised by the blooms on it this year. They were neon orange for most of the summer. They looked pretty fierce in the sunlight. Now they are turning more red and fading out.

Is the foliage bronze/brown? Then Black Knight, Black Prince, or E. affinis.

Lovely plant.

There is a Black Prince in the container. I purchased a small one this year.

I think its an Echeveria, but either way I love the way you photographed it- very appropriate for the spooky season!

Thanks. This plant bloomed the first time this year. We have had it many, and it never bloomed. It gave me a love for succulents. I have purchased over 15 this year, and excited to see what the look like while blooming.
