Delivered to you in March / April
Held on a tough succulent stem, some of which are darkly freckled, the flowers hang densely jostling for space, each flower a pale ivory green with a purple centre and hemmed in purple. As they set seed these swell and inflate to an architectural green cudgel that develops a purple and brown suntan as it ages. Glossy leaved and good for pots or the garden.
