unknown plants

Hello: This is my 3rd try… can you please identify the plants in this photo? I know the one in the back is a jade but what are the two in the foreground? The one with the dark leaves is blooming red flowers that grow in a hortizontal formation annually. I would really like to know what these are and their origins.

I don’t answer identification questions, but I’ll do it in this case. The dark green one is a type of Begonia, sometimes called Angel Wing Begonias due to the shape of the leaves. They are easy to grow and propagate, you can even propagate them from a leaf laid on the soil with slits in it. New plants grow from the slits.

The succulent looks like Graptopetalum ‘Fred Ives’. Is that what you needed?
