Ceropegia "Rosary Vine" (Ceropegia woodii)

I've been after a Ceropegia woodii for a while now, so I was delighted to find this one when we stopped off at a garden centre on the way back from the botanic gardens today.
It has small leaves of 12/15mm, with flowers of about 20mm. The stems hang down in this plant and are a metre in length!

6d - to be honest, we only called in to get some slug pellets!! It was the last place that I expected to find one of these.

Sticki - this is the next one on my list......

you have to be very patient for these type of plants dont you?

That one is in the cactus house at the botanic gardens - there is always something else to see!
A few more photos coming from our visit today, but next Sundays will be the ones to look for!

Where are you going?

2 May, 2011

 

nowhere as exotic as your plants ~ nor as warm as the botanic gardens
going to Islay for a week, wont be so good if the weather changes.

I'm so ignorant that I had to google Islay!
Traveled the world, yet I've only spent six hours in Scotland.....

Love these. I had a couple about 20 years ago, they grew SO long, wonderful. Happy to see it again! :))

6 hours in scotland?? i could spend 6 years, its wild, remote, beautiful and has space! i love it!! the beaches on the west coast are to die for!! [they are good in wind, rain and definitely in sunshine]

it doesnt have your exotic plants ~ although edinburgh botanical gardens has some beautiful specimens but you should go to the west coast and those islands if you can.

Lulu - I find the Ceropegias fascinating. This one is a nice healthy looking plant with plenty of new growth too.

I must make the effort one day Sticki.

its definitely worth it ~ if you dont mind a little cooler weather!
