Pleiospilos nelii

Pleiospilos nelii (Pleiospilos nelii)

Pleiospilos nelii, known as Split Rocks or Cleft Stone due to its succulent leaves resemblance to a split stone. I caught mine in bloom yesterday. The flowers are only fully open a few hours late in the day before closing up for the night.

They're fascinating plants!
One of their common names over here is Living Stones.

It's has a beautiful flower! Is this in your front yard?

Yes it's out front in the same pot as my Blue Glow Agave. It gets a lot of sun and heat on the patio on top of the garage.
