Twenty-two and nursing a gardening addiction in a little apartment while I figure out life. I prefer succulents and other weirdos of the plant world, but all plants are beautiful. Questions and comments are welcome. Suggestions are welcome if you have thought them through.
Here’s the plant I picked up at the meeting I went to on Sunday: Crassula perfoliata var. falcata. It has roots coming out of the bottom, but I think it’s just from being watered from the bottom. I’m going to trim them and leave it in this pot, because it would look rather lost in a 4-inch pot, I think.
Also something I learned at the meeting: it’s CRASS-u-la, not crass-U-la. Good to know. I’ve spent a lot of time reading and writing about succulents, but not so much talking aloud about them
At Longwood Gardens, the highest concentration of succulents was in the Silver Garden, a collection of silvery desert plants from all over the world. Here’s a cutie from that collection, Crassula ‘Morgan’s Pink.’
This is a picture of Crassula mesembryanthemopsis (try saying that five times fast) from the book on succulents I got for Christmas. I’m in the process of writing a really thorough review of the book to post on Amazon (I’ll post a link when I’m done.).
I also kinda sorta want this plant. Man, I wish I lived somewhere where I could just wander into a nursery and buy (sort-of?) rare succulents. I’m hoping the selection at the Philadelphia Flower Show is good, but it’s in three months and I have my doubts.
