What succulent is this?

This amazing succulent was photographed at a friend’s farm in Southern KZN, near Kokstad.  It looks prehistoric.  Does anyone recognise it?

How does her garden grow?

No cockle shells here, some stones..  When we think of gardens (particularly here in Durban) we often think luscious green… On the contrary, my mother, Helen, has created a unique and interesting garden mainly using stones, pot plants, succulents and cacti… I think the pics speak for themselves. Isn’t it cool?

Underwater succulent

My friend Sue gave me a tiny piece of this succulent a couple of years back and it has now grown into a fully-fledged plant – this is the first time it has flowered.   I don’t think it is indigenous as it looks South American to me.  Anyone recognise it?

Amazing flower

I just wanted to share some photographs of this amazing, lily flower which grew out of a very ordinary succulent in a corner of my garden.

Succulent mystery, part two

A couple of months back, Sonya posted a photograph of a succulent with an interesting flower.  I have a succulent with a similar leaf structure to Sonya’s and with an equally interesting, but different flower.  Any suggestions as to what it is?
