Flowers aren’t the only way to bring color into the garden, and not all gems are precious stones. Pictured:

  • Graptosedum ‘Bronze’
  • Echeveria mazarine
  • Sedum adolphii
  • Sedum spurium ‘Dragon’s Blood’
  • Senecio radicans
  • Graptopetalum titubans

Can you pick out each? All but one are members of family Crassulaceae.
