I love the astilbe. I need to get some of those. I am looking for a nice flowering plant that doesn't mind somewhat semi shady conditions and it is my understanding that Astilbe don't need a lot of sun.
I'm not sure but I think the succulent is sometimes known as "hens and chickens." If that's the one, I have to admit I had one a few years ago and I managed to kill it.
