I know I did a post only recently about one succulent's lovely colours at this time of year (Senecio jacobensii), but I think the topic is worth another quick visit just because everything in the succulent patch is celebrating spring through colour.
|Crassula 'Campfire' looks like it was made for the lolly shop.|
|First prize for good, obvious names goes to the|
person who decided that this cultivar of
Kalanchoe orygalis should be called 'Copper
Spoons'. This living rust never sleeps.
|The marketing people have called Kalanchoe thyrsiflora, with|
its big, red-rimmed leaves 'Flapjacks' but that name has never
particularly appealed to me. I prefer lipstick hippos.
|Last, and probably least, in this colourful company is this|
little green-leafed sedum with the red tips, whose small clusters
of daisy flowers is a cheerful sight this morning.
