Pachyphytum bracteosum updated

Yes, it is double-posted, but why should those Houseplant Folk get all of the fun?

Pachyphytum bracteosum just beginning its long-lived display of floral color, and I was able to capture a few images before the aphids had their way with the flowers.

Beautiful Jeff! The leaves look like alabaster pebbles. Very appealing plant!

Quite stunning Mr. Jeffrey, I love those hooded flowers on the Pachys, they hide in there like a delightful little surprise waiting to be discovered.

Cheers mate, CP
