Please name the plants in the picture.

    I'm lucky to have both in question. The common names are "Blue Chalk Sticks" (Senecio) and "Flapjacks" (kalanchoe).

    I got them at Home Depot about 3 years ago. Very easy to grow - water once a week. Flapjacks flower about mid-May with a tall stalk of yellow flowers that hummingbirds love.

I love all your work. Do succulents do better with mulch or DG?

          Don't they freeze in the winter? I can get as low as 18 degrees.
