Can anyone tell me what these two are? Ive had the big one for about 10 years and saved it when it was a little half dead brown stick! My mum reckons its an easter cactus as it flowers at easter - but its flowering now as you can see!!

The other one i've only just bought but i've lost the card!!

TIA

The one on the right i think is an umbrella plant. I have one too.

Christmas cactus I think. Although I think they're the same as easter ones.

Ooh - while there's knowledgeable helpful peeps about , can I highjack and ask if anyone knows the name of this plant: bright crimson pink summer flowers with furry silver gray leaves, I think it's a perennial? The various friends I know who've got it don't know what it is, and I can't find it in my gardening books. The leaves are really lovely and furry, shaped a bit like tulips leaves, and they're about a foot high, maybe less.

no idea!!! Sounds really nice though - do you have a pic?

Could it be Stachys (Lamb's Ears)? The leaves are quite thick, furry and look like (surprise, surprise) lamb's ears.

It is gorgeous Onzephyrst, can't link the picture I've found but well worth hunting out.
