please could someone advise me on the names of the plants/shrubs in the photo's,the purple one is from my nieces garden in sydney..

the yellow one is very popular around this area,and i had one in my garden until the builder killed it,

i would very much like to purchase these if at al possible,

i am very new to looking after a garden so all help would be much appreciated



The first one is an Aeonium and the second one looks like a Potentilla  If your niece can spare one of the rosettes of the Aeonium you can put it into some compost and it will root

If you in the UK, both are available over here.

That Aeonium will need to spend the winter indoors, lovely plant but it did not even survive in the garage.
