Ledebouria socialis (Ledebouria socialis)

Bloomed indoors in the spring. I moved it outdoors as a table ornament/feature plant for the summer and it's in bloom again. The flowers are tiny, but so colourful. A close up is here.....................

Just a weed! LOL! :>)

I'm just giving you a bad time, Meanie!

Can't this plant grow outside for you? It's super, super hardy and extremely fast growing...it's also very drought tolerant.

It will grow quite happily, but not survive the winter (too wet).
It's a popular bulb amongst succulent growers.

Yes, the wet and cold kills more frequently than cold and dry...especially for succulents.
