Sainte Verde Succulents

Last Sunday, after my epic 15km run, Chips and I headed out to Dargle to investigate the Saint Verde Succulent Nursery.  Open once a month, and located about an hour and a half from Durban, the nursery is a succulent-lovers paradise.  Beautifully laid out under an old shed, the succulents are available in colour-coded ceramic pots or – if you want to buy your own pot from the one of the many potters in the area – plastic containers.

I’m a big fan of succulents and have been collecting for years but the nursery had a large number that I didn’t own or, indeed, hadn’t seen before.  While worth the drive!

Segmented succulent

Anyone recognise this little succulent? I’ve had it for a few years now and love its segmented stem. Its quite unusual as I haven’t seen many of them around.

Stone Plant in Bloom

My stone plant has just flowered and I wanted to share some pics of it. I always find it amazing that these hardy plants have such beautiful, delicate flowers.

heart plant

Does anyone have any idea what this succulent is called?  I was given it a few years ago and I love how it resembles a heart.  I think these would make fantastic wedding party favours, but I’ve  no idea what they are or where I could find them…  Help!
