Wow, best collection of images all in one place, I will 'tag' this great article so I can refer back often. I have so many of the more common ones pictured and I had also saved that picture of the blue 'Monet' inspired bowl when Sunset Magazine featured it as I would love to duplicate it someday. Your combo creations, as well as your talented girlfriends' are equally inspiring.

This is my favorite article you've written Palmbob! I grow some of the more common species, those that are available here (they are expensive!!) - did you know that some will overwinter easily here in zone 7b/8a in a sheltered location without a single drop of water all winter (that is the key!!). I grow them hardy here - just bring the up on the covered porch and they do great.
These photos are really a knockout!

Nice article with good pix. Down here in Austin, TX Echeverias are much more difficult to grow. We have too much summer heat and humidity, nonetheless I have a fairly large number in pots. They do very well in spring, late winter---but sulk all summer. They live in the greenhouse in winter, not reliably hardy here---and in a wire greenhouse with only morning sun in the summer. In the fall they get beheaded and the heads rooted (they root very quickly) to prevent them from getting leggy and top heavy. Sempervivums and Aeoniums do not do well here at all---way too hot.
