|Succulents from Lowes|
I was seriously excited to see some of the varieties I had recently been reading about in “Succulent Container Gardens” by Debra Lee Baldwin. Some of the names crack me up.
Stone Faces / Lithops species Mimicry Plant (hard to tell from the shadow of the screen, but these look like they have brains printed on the tops!):
Split Rock / Pleiospilos nelii Mimicry Plant (looks like something that would grow on an alien planet!):
Senecio crassissimus (I love the pinkish edges):
Bear’s Paws / Cotyledon ladismithiensis (these remind me of my kitties’ fuzzy paws):
Donkey Tail Burrito (doesn’t look like any burrito I’ve ever eaten):
Pork and Beans / Sedum rubrotinctum (another one of those funny names, with a stray, which I believe is Sempervivum aarachnoideum, aka white-webbed cobweb houseleek):
Crassula perforata variegata (I find the stacked leaves kind of fascinating):
Jade Plant / Crassula argentea (I sure do love me some two-toned leaves...with a stray, which I believe is Sempervivum aarachnoideum, aka white-webbed cobweb houseleek):
I also bought two pre-planted assortments. I was impressed with how nice these looked.

Does this mean I’ll be shopping at Lowes more often for plants? Well, probably not. But maybe if I need any more succulents. I think I bought enough this time, though. I was high on succulent-love.
