#2 looks like Silver Dollar Jade (Crassula arborescens). It's toxic to dogs, cats and horses: "vomiting, upset stomach, and (rarely) tremors, but cats may also show signs of drunkenness after ingestion."

#1 is the beautiful Aeonium arborium var. varigatum also called schwartzkopf (German: black head). It is native to the Canary Islands but thrives in any Mediterranean climate, like ours. Now for a plug: a great plant ID site is iNaturalist.org. Download the app, take a photo + request help with ID. Both a computer program + other plant aficionados can help you figure it out. Great fun!

It is always helpful to know that Oleander and Nightshade can be toxic in large quantities to humans and pets. Sorry, no herbal teas from this garden.

I was reading about the nightshade, says it can be toxic but also says that all kinds of cultures have eaten it going many years back...

.Number 1 looks like Aeonium. I have one that, after 2 years in the ground, put up a large yellow flower cluster. They are from the Canary Islands and do fine planted in soil or pots in SoCal.

I have a bunch of the black succulent.It produces large yellow blooms. Aeonium Arboreum I believe.The second one is another succulent, Cotyledon Orbiculata that makes a nice flower stalk as well. Both from South Africa I believe. Actually where most of our succulents come from.I think 5 is a Ribes and the last one is a weed I think. All could be repotted or planted in the yard and do very well here.Even the weed.
