Out of a pig's ear . . .



Pig's Ear or Cotyledon orbiculata.
Beautiful silky coral bells on my souvenir from
East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden in Norfolk.

  1. Oh, what a beautiful thing! I don't think I've ever seen one of those. How tall is it, please?

  2. Hi Toffeeapple - the flower stalk is about 50cm tall and each flower about 3cm long. I'm so thrilled with it!

  5. Greetings! I stopped by to get caught up on the happenings at PPP--haven't been by in a while. Best wishes for a speedy recovery! Those Pig's Ears are something!

  7. Hi Gina, Silverpebbel & Sarah S.
    The big silver succulent leaves attracted me to buy it so this wonderful flower spike has been a lovely surprise!

    Weed Whackin' Wenches - I've a few more weeks of 'lite' duties only, but now feeling well enough to enjoy it!

I love reading all the comments (except for spam and advertising which I will delete) and I'll reply here in the comments under each blog post, it may take a few days if I'm busy.
