I love the winter colors that succulents put on even better than their flowers. Shows your winter colors. PLEASE!. I will start the ball rolling with a few of mine. Crassula capiella "campfire. This one is in part shade most of the day. I should put it in the sun and see what happens. Click on images for a larger image.

No winter here, but lovely colours. The Echeveria is very nicely marked, I think. Lovely group of plants.

RE: Show us your winter colors

I can't, since they look so awful in their etiolation desolation I'd have them taken away by the authorities.

Great group of winter colors, Mara!

Some may be wearing the color they have year-round! =)

I knew I would get a rise from a californian. Any Arizonans with rosy plants . Here are a few more while I am at it. They give me such joy. Year after winter.

This one is probably prettier now than it is in the Spring. Unfortunately, I don't know the name of it....


 o
RE: Show us your winter colors

OooEee, more gorgeous plants, Mara & greybird!

GB, I believe that is a Euphorbia. Species name won't come to my mind, as much as I would LIKE it to do so. :P I have NEVER seen one take on those colors! Fabulous!


 o
RE: Show us your winter colors

Hrmm. I'm not sure if that Euphorbia could be 'Ascot Rainbow' or another more colorful hybrid. I haven't grown it (yet) to know how its colors really develop.


 o
RE: Show us your winter colors

Greybird, I think Colleen has it...Euphorbia x martinii 'Ascot Rainbow'! Yours is more beautifully colored than any I've seen on the web. =) Now I WANT it! LOL


 o
RE: Show us your winter colors

I love those Euphorbias but none of that vein of the genus will take our heat and rainless humidity (it is not fair). I have tried the E wulfenii (SP) and others but they whimp out even with watering. I will have to stick with the E. rigida and E myresinites. They will put up with my brutal form of gardening.


 o
RE: Show us your winter colors

Thanks for the ID, I believe that's it! It's prettier in the winter, isn't it! And Mara, maybe you should try it...our summers here in SE Missouri are plenty hot and humid. But like you said, I've had other Euphorbias that just don't make it.


 o
RE: Show us your winter colors

Alas , it is also the length of our intense summers. I will admire yours from the sidelines.

The Sticks-on-Fire colors up the best here. The Aloe colors are in the flowers, too mild for good foliage color.

Beautiful pics! Mara, Aloe cameronii has always been a favorite of mine...that color, that texture! And Rosemarie, you know I'm partial to your Jades...wish I could get that kind of Winter color on mine ;-)

This is a succulent at my brother's house in Sacramento, where I visited yesterday. He started this as a cutting, from a plant growing outside of a business. I can't wait to see it trimmed...lots of back-budding.

Mara, you've got some terrific colors going on out there! I grabbed a few shots for this thread last week. Glad it popped up again, almost forgot.
