Todays Flower

I’m always unsure about the name of this plant
Some acquaintances said it is 
Saxifraga aka London Pride
then others say it is called
Crassula multicava aka Stonecrop
I’m leaning towards Crassula because of the glossy leaves
but whatever its name – it grows anywhere
and is also one of those
really easy to propagate 
just break a piece off and stick in the ground
type of plants
Heres the patch down near the cat pen
covering the ground fabulously
and green the whole year round
click any of the photos for a closer view
I took these photos the other day
You can see the tiny little flowers buds
on the tips of the long thin stems
In a few weeks they will open out
and from a distance
the whole of this area
will look like its covered with pink fluff
These are from early spring (October) last year

  1. Yes, they look very like a sedum I have growing "wild" in my excuse for a garden. It will be a few months before mine put up flower heads though!


  2. Some folks call them 'forever yours' around here. 'Live forever' is a name I have heard, too. I suppose the meaning is that you can't kill them! I use them as borders a lot and haven't managed to kill them to date.
