Pretty pigface II


These pigface flowers close every night. The newest ones are small and a brilliant red, fading to the vibrant dark pink but seemingly getting larger each day.


These trailing pigface strands grew from a small clump taken from my school's garden, but have grown much bigger than the parent plant! There weren't many flowers this year, until I had the larger, separate pigface plant above trimmed back, allowing more light to hit the bush rock wall over which which the smaller blooms were trailing. The tiny blooms popped open the very next day!
