Cotyledon orbiculare

Cotyledon orbiculare

Spectacular looking with big gray fleshy round leaves with a reddish edge and brilliant orange red flowers on meter high plants. Halda collected this up high in the Drakensburg back in the mid 90's, it probably is the most cold hardy form in cultivation although it melted outside for Dick and Tony; it may be great out west. In terms of floral display and foliage effect, no other succulent we grow even comes close.____ZONE 6

Beschorneria 'Ding Dong'

Beschorneria 'Ding Dong'

Plant Delights selection, (are ho ho's and Twinkies next) of false red Agave, seven foot phallic stalks open to multitudes of pendant red and green bell shaped flowers, it's hardy at Plant Delights, I'm guessing not so here.

Manfreda 'Jaguar'

Manfreda 'Jaguar'

Dramatic almost BLACK leaves in full sun, green with lots of dark spots in less light. Very dramatic and cool looking, the leaves are thick, fleshy and very tropical looking, giving you much of the look of an agave without the vicious spines. Should reach a couple feet wide and tall, and mature plants will flower in fall in typical manfreda fashion, which is to say, nothing to write home about. It is all about the leaves here. Zone 7

Aloinopsis schoonessii

Aloinopsis schoonessii

One of the stone plants, the mimicry is not as good as with lithops but they are still cool looking more like some dead fleshy reptilian toe than a rock.

Bergeranthus artus

Bergeranthus jamesii

Bergeranthus jamesii

Crack filler for the Denver sidewalks, dense tufts of succulent narrow leaves and yellow mesemb flowers from spring until frost, hey if you have crack problems this may be just the thing (non-smokable, but highly ornamental, it doesn't encourage drive-bys).

Chasmatophyllum musculinum

Chasmatophyllum musculinum

Yet another of the "Hardy" Delosperma-like mesembs (hardy in Denver's zone five has become something of a joke around here, which is why I have such disdain for zone maps). It survived the winter here but died in the spring mushy season, like most of them it needs it dry to make it, but it is easy to bring a piece inside, they root like weeds.

Chasmatophyllum sp.

Chasmatophyllum sp.

A nearly everblooming plant from Krugerskrall via Alan Bradshaw with bright yellow flowers over tufts of foliage that emerge emerald green in spring in nice contrast to the bluish overwintering foliage.

Dudleya edulis 03 247

Dudleya edulis 03 247

Tired of barbequed goat tacos how about Kiviak, a traditional Eskimo Christmas feast that is sure to get you talked about, it takes a bit of planning. First, kill a seal (clubbing is best as you want no holes in the skin) skin it out through the mouth to produce a seal shaped bag. Find some nesting Auks (Puffins or seabirds can work) stuff the seal with whole birds (feathers and all) along with their eggs and some seaweed. Sew up mouth and bury for eight months or so, Dig it up and scrape out the resulting goop. Kiviak is great but it needs a little something extra we suggest you garnish it with Dudleya edulis before serving. You'll need something special for desert to get the taste out of your mouth, we suggest fully ripe Durian.
