Flat leaves, diamond shape, layered
Unique "flowers" that look like mini green housesHi Rita, someone else asked me about these same plants - and I told them the same thing - those are super cool, but I have no idea what they are! I'm hoping some real expert botanist will be along soon, and tell us all what kind of plant this is. Love the texture, and the little greenhouse effect!
What is this?
(Traverse City, MI)
Saw this picture on someone's blog. They did not seem to know what it was, so I am trying to find out myself. It blooms large white flowers with black vertical stripes that seem to create a bubble which traps moisture inside the flower. The pictures were taken in Tingri, Tibet and looks like a dry area. Any information would be great!
Drought Smart Plants reply: Wow, what a great texture! There is no end to the variety and texture of these amazing plants, that's for sure!
I'm so sorry I don't instantly recognize this plant - I would remember if I had ever seen it before. My strong suite is not the plants of Tibet, unfortunately. It looks as though my education is sorely lacking.
I'll keep looking, hopefully I'll run across it again.
Very unusual plant - I would love to see a picture of the flower, that sounds fascinating. Talk about perfectly evolved for the conditions!
i would love to know what this succulent is
i found this on the internet and thought was beautiful. i'd love to add this to my succulent collection :) any help is appreciated
I don't know exactly what that gorgeous plant is, but it's been suggested that it's a type of Crassula. Others have been just as taken with the same pictures and asked about the plant here:
Tibetan Succulent - sorry I don't know more about it.
