Mesembreanthemum


Mesembreanthemum (Mesembryanthemum crystallinum (Buzotu))

And, of course, my ever-present livingstone daisy. I can't go a summer without this spectacular and vivid bloom smiling at me in the sun. A little cool for them this year, but still many good days. They are a real trooper.

Thanks Michaella. :-) I just love these. Seems I do something to them every year so they are never as good as that first, but even one bloom and I'm happy.

Thank you Motinot. Snuck in a comment while I was off writing.....lol.

A good bunch of this is a real sight 6p. That's why i love them. A chore keeping off the dead ones, but it will reward you all season long, every sunny moment.

I had no idea they would overwinter! Of course not in my winter, but if I brought it in, I thought it was strictly an annual! I must try taking a cutting this fall and see how it goes. They are worth any effert.
