New unnamed beauties

I was happy yesterday. But this first one is not IDed. The small rosettes' leaves have a distinctly waxy, almost fuzzy texture.

Followed by some unIDed blue-purple hues for everybody's enjoyment

And this Graptoveria is beloved and has been pictured before, but was looking swell today. The smaller of the two has a lovely center glow currently.

I believe your 1st plant is Aeonium 'Ballerina'.

OK, that is fantastic. Thank you so much, Rosemarie. That was the last ID possibility I'd considered. Such a sweet plant.

Colleen, as I was going through my archive of pix...looking for something else...I came across my 'Ballerina'! At least, I had one back in October (when you posted this). It's gone now. :( Me, bad Mama! Well, I will swoon at yours. Ha ha!

Holy crud, way to go old post!! :) I'd love to see what your 'Ballerina' looked like, if you have the pic? Can I ask, what did it in?

I've made a mental note about your needing a replacement... and when spring finally gets here I know we have some planssss...

Colleen: I was going to suggest Graptoveria paraguayense or 'Ghosty' (although they might be the same thing...?), but too many of the hits I find online don't match your NOID. I am pretty certain it's a Grapto, tho. And it's very pretty.
