Here's a cute succulent-like perennial called a Draba. It is very small, about the size of a quarter!
It is a spring bloomer related to the broccoli!

Ron those are wonderful.
The h&C I posted are all very small they are only between 1/2 and 1 1/2 inches. Some multiply well so don't. But I love em and they wintered over well here.
Spideer the second pic is a sedum that I got in a trade unlike the plant the name tag did not winter over. But I really love the colors on it.

Ms Sandi The dappled one is named Frodo, yes he was already named when my daughter gave him to me. He is a sweetheart about 5 yrs old. The other two are brother and sister Fanny Mae ( in the middle) and Freddy Mac they are just over a year old.
I just love these little mutt dogs.

CG mine all winter over here in zone 5, most hens and chicks are hardy to zone 3 or 4.
I don't take any special care of them, they are so care free and make me so happy that they "forced" me to order more H&C again this year, they will be here in May

I plant then and ignore them!
They can take just about any type of weather conditions! They come through our nasty cold winters without flinching! Even without any snow coverage!
They grow in pure sand for me, but will do better with any type of loam, even clay soils!

By the way Kya, the first photo is called 'Oddity'! It's the one with dimpled leaves!
I started dividing the ones I have that are still in pots yesterday and have several more pots of them to pull apart and repot!
