Came across this Cheiridopsis peculiaris at the SDCSS sale today.
It's my lucky day as I have never seen this one for sale! It was labeled
C. peculiaris 'Steinklopf'. Since other Cheiri's do well in my climate,
I hope this one does too!
Blooming in Spring. Notice old leaves are beginning to die back and turn red. I may have it in too much sun?!
A couple of months later, new (green) growth emerging from the center of main plant and small pup growing at the right side. Flower remains on plant and has not completely dried. Not sure if purple coloration is dying tissue or a response to increased sunlight.
