Broad, flat but thick leaf succulent

by Barbara
(Cardiff by the Sea CA)

I found this plant in the garden of a house I bought in coastal Southern CA.

It doesn't look to be in very good shape but is pretty and I'd like to save it.

I tried to figure out what it is, thought it might be a kalanchoe of some type, but the leaves are too thick for any variety I could find.

They are almost like a cactus, very densely packed, but with no spines. The red flower is like a little bouquet. Help?

Thank you so much! Yes the flowers are lovely. I inherited this multi planted pot and a lot of others with a house I bought, and want to make sure I take proper care of them.

...there seems to be more than one type in there. The red flowering plant on the right is a Crassula falcata. On the left - not sure, probably a Kalanchoe, as mentioned.

That's a Crassula falcata, I'm quite jealous of your flowers!
