Thought I'd just bring my last post over here:
Yes, Janice, I am a semp lover. I have a lot more but couldn't locate the pictures. Well, that's enough for now anyway since it's probably time for a new thread. Beautiful photos of your late bloomers up there! I have a few Cosmose still going. Bottom middle ... is that a hardy Geranium or?
I'd go with the Arachnoideum semps, Jo Ann, Living Stones (Lithops) are very tricky. They like it warm and dry ... period. Absolutely no tolerance for anything else. But they are from South Africa so that's their mother climate. About one extra drop of water and they are history. :(
I finally coaxed a bloom out of this one. I love them but they try my patience.
Janice, Have you had success with the hardy Geraniums in your zone?
