Aptenia


Aptenia (Aptenia cordifolia variegata)

A lovely succulent plant that is usually used as summer basket bedding. It can be kept over winter indoors apparently, and this is what I am going to try to do. It's very pretty with variegated leaves and modest but very pretty deep pink flowers.

No, me neither Louisa. I found it amongst the hanging basket plants at the GC.

You do manage to find some truly lovely unusual plants - this is definitely one of them, a really nice pic of it too.
