Succulents in Wisconsin

Sempervivum spp.

Traveling back in Madison, I searched out the hardy succulents of the Midwest.  They were few and far between, but I think I tracked down all five succulents in Olbrich Gardens. I’m sure I missed a Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’ somewhere, and this Sempervivum looks adorable.

Sedum rupestre ‘Angelina’

Awesome use of Sedum rupestre “Angelina’ used as “spill” for this container.

Agave weberi (I think, but not sure)

Hey, I think this is an Agave weberi.  Can anybody confirm?

Agave x leopoldii (another guess, help!)

Golden barrel cactus (Echinocactus grusonii)

The last three are guesses, so any help with ID’ing would rock.
