Cactus Monday - Echeveria

This pot of succulents and Silver Falls Dichondra was wintered over from last summer. I am so pleased with them I wish I could put them into the ground but they would succumb to our winters.

The Echeveria is blooming. It blooms a couple of times per year. I really like this bloom because it looks like a heart this time.  I don't know what the tall cactus is in the middle of the pot. I thought it would be a good contrast with the Echeveria and dichondra because was a reddish color. In our light it has lost a lot of its color. I might take it out.
Happy Cactus Monday to you all. My heart goes out to all of you.

Hi Lisa...your tall succulent in the pot is a Euphorbia trigona! I have always wanted one! When will I just go get one??? LOL. Too funny.

Your pot is so full of loveliness, and I bet it really does look fantastic when the trigona leaves are red! The sun will bring out the color...will you show it to us when it changes??? Hehehe...pleeese?????

I had one of those cactus' in the first photo. The tall ones. It was given to us as a baby and lived in our breeze way. It didnt take to long before it go as tall as the house reaching for the sun and top heavy and the spikes were long. It became to dangerous to keep in there and had to go. But it sure did grow fast. I need to find some pictures of it.

What a great combination - I'll have to remember that. Love the heart - that's very cute.

Oh don't take it out! The contrast between colors, falling sedum and the height of the Euphorbia is beautiful. Very nice work. It is quite healthy or it would not have all those little leaves on it.

Sorry I'm late but HCM!
