    The arrangement of petals and leaves on plants never ceases to amaze me – they are invariably perfectly designed 🙂

      Hi Cathy
      I love succulents, they are beautiful and this one has lovely orange flowers later in the year

    2. That’s what I love about them too. Such beautiful natural symmetry!

  2. Helen, I brought mine into the greenhouse which is heated for the first time this year. I removed some of the little side shoots and I am thrilled to say they have rooted. It’s a beautiful plant and I temporarily brought it indoors to grace my dining room table. Great photograph.

      Hi Nel, I was told the other day that they were hardy in the UK and had withstood the very low temperatures (-18C) we had a few years ago. However, mine are still in a frost free greenhouse as I dont know if I want to risk them especially when we have low temperatures forecast this coming week

    Such lovely geometry.

    I had a ‘hardy strain’ outside for quite a few years but 2010 winter did for it. I keep my ‘regular’ ones overwinter in a unheated greenhouse. Normally they come through unscathed but I have started to keep the odd one in a frost free front porch and yes they do propagate very easily
