You can grow just a little bit of it and put it in a pot that already has flowers in it. I have a pot that grows Lampranthus in that way.... :)

Because, in winter, I have to put already in my home geraniums, clivias, agapanthus, and so on. It is a lot of work, and they take a lot of space ...

You are very welcome. Why don't you put them into pots Libellule ? Then when the winter comes, you can move them where they will be protected. Hope that will help.... :)

Many thanks, Mary. I looked for your informations, and ...found ! I also knew these plants : I saw a lot in Spain, with many colours, and also in Greece. But never pink. I thought about to put some ones in my own garden, but they freeze ... And we have sometimes 10-15° C less 0.

Yes you are right, cuteyoungchic. They do call this plant Pigface as well but I think though that they are really meant for another plant called Carpobrotus. The Carpobrotus plant has thicker leaves than the Lampranthus plant has....

I have no idea how the nick-name originated here, but we in OZ call them Pig-face - not to be disrespectful, as the flowers are just gorgeous.

Hi Libellule, Yes, I do know the name of this plant. It is called Lampranthus. It is from the Mesembryanthum famlly. It is a succulent. I have a few of them in pots on the balcony where I live. Mine are orange and yellow. I also have a pink one too. They are really lovely plants. I have put a link here for you to look through. Take care, Libellule. Hope your weekend is going well...:)

Mary, do you know the name of these short flowers growing near the seaside ? I don't know it ...
