I'm fighting a bad cold, so instead of pouting over not diving I decided to photograph plants instead. We found a plant earlier this year at Marineland. I've also seen a hillside at White Point covered with it. The thing that attracted me to it was that even in arid conditions, the plants still have water droplets on the leaves and stems all day. The have a small single tap root, making transplanting easy, or so I thought. I brought one home and put it in our rock garden, but it died within a couple of days.
Fortunately, Merry didn't throw it away. The seeds from the dead plant germinated into dozens of healthy plants that are now spreading over the garden. Does anyone know the name of this beautiful plant?
