How could such a wonderful succulent with such gorgeous flowers have a name like Navel Wort? And its alternate name, which I won't mention here as it includes the name of a very non-kosher animal, isn't any better! That said, I just wanted to share with you my blooming succulent, as with all the trendy succulent gardening which seems to be going on, I haven't seen much mention of flowering succulents, when in fact many do! And even more interesting, one often can't even identify a mystery succulent until it flowers, showing its true self.
This year this pot only produced one stalk of flowers for some reason, and as always it amazes me to walk around town and see the same succulent also blooming in other people's container gardens at the same time.....amazing!
