Cacti and Succulents
Calandrinia spectabilis is a gorgeous specimen in a succulent native garden also known as Rock Purslane. This plant forms a small shrub 2 to 3 feet tall & up to 5 feet wide. The foliage is succulent, evergreen, & adds a nice soft gray-green to the garden. The real treat is the flowers, they are borne on tall wispy stalks held about 1 to 2 feet above the foliage. The flowers themselves are 3 inches wide & are a bright glowing magenta color. The flowers bloom almost year-round in mild Southern California Gardens. Calandrinia thrives in heat, withstands drought, & tolerates poor soil. This succulent plant is also a good choice for containers, slopes, coastal gardens, & fire-resistant landscapes.
I think these are as nice as any traditional garden flower and they will save you money because you rarely need to water them
