December 2018 - Crassulaceae

Post by Diane » Sat Dec 01, 2018 11:56 am

While it's not the best time of year for a photographic challenge, there are some plants that are winter growers. In particular, Crassula, but I'm extending the scope to include any genera within the Crassulaceae, so that includes Aeonium, Echeveria, Adromischus, Kalanchoe, Sedum, Dudleya and of course Crassula (and any others I haven't thought of!)
Let's be 'aving 'em!

After finding all those obscure names I will start with one of my Crassula ovata flower pictures taken a few years ago as there are only buds on my plants now

Echeveria Perle von Nurnberg in a 27cm bowl.

And then a trio of wall planters - Sedum Clavatum, Sedum Burrito and Graptopetalum Amythestium

All photos taken last week. I love how evergreen succulents are. They brighten up even the gloomiest of winter days! :grin:
