Karoo succulent

We recently drove down from Durban to Cape Town and stayed at this lovely Victorian guesthouse in Richmond in the Karoo. Sprawled on the stoep was this impressive succulent. The temperature often drops below 0 degrees, so it must be pretty hardy!

    A lovely specimen indeed, but not from the Karoo. This is an Echeveria species, native to Central and South America.
