“Just like a woman…”

….. says Yvonne. “Soft on the outside but be aware of the spines under the succulent leafs…”.

Alluaudia procera (origin: Madagascar) is one of my favourite succulent plants. Both ones in our garden are 3 year old cuttings which are now about 2 meters above the ground. Guess it will become about 10-12 meters high in time.

Miniature landscapes in a small garden 7

We only have a small garden plus a lawn with a border for our dog. The succulent garden (4 patches) measures about 80 square meters and is home to around 600 different registered species. Some of the plants are naturally multiplying (always a healthy sign for a garden)  and of some we take cuttings which we plant nearby the parent plant. In total, wild guess;  probably around 1000-1100 plants of this surface. Within the garden we try to create miniature landscapes sometimes hidden between rocks or bigger plants and sometimes part of a bigger patch with more spheres. Why not share a selection of 8 different ones?
