One flowering spike from AEONIUM ARBOREUM "SCHWARZKOPF" brings brilliant warming life to our courtyard on these chilly winter days. Hundreds of flowers cluster on the stem, each one a reminder that Spring is not far away.
This plant is a native of Africa. On my 4 trips to Africa I have searched out this and other members of the crassulaceae family, and aloes and other succulent plants and photographed them. To have one in our courtyard flowering in such profusion takes my thoughts back to that exciting continent.
Dedicated to all readers who would like to post up a flower photo for Flower Power Friday.
