Thanks Mormor :-))
that was different. You really got some great shots of it. :)
Thanks NF :-))
I can't manage to keep that plant growing, but I love the blossoms!!! So odd looking, but I think they are beautiful!!
Yes, they look really odd when the flower-stem suddenly shoots up from the ground-hugging plant :-))
Beautiful in all its stages.. A new one to me BTW.
Thanks Sallie :-)) Sempervivum is quite a common ground alpine, found in many countries. I 'm surprised you've not seen it before.
This flower is so pretty, before and after blooming is like a magic!
Thanks Sophie :-))
beautiful Mitch-I love it closed too before blooming
Thanks Kathy :-)) I think most people are more familiar with the ground-hugging plant, than it's flowers.
So interesting with closeup pictures. It is like a new world. I just love such photos.
Thanks Ulla :-))
OMG Mitch what are theseeeeee ?
Hi Fatos. It's Sempervivum, a ground-hugging alpine plant (see the third shot for how it looks usually). When it flowers, it sends up little stalks on the top of which a group of small flowers open (see the first two shots).
Wonderful pictures, they pretty flowers, ... great colors!
Thanks Leovi :-))
wow..............wonderful, what are those flowers at the top, they are really something. Just realised, are they passion flowers?? What ever they are they make pefect photos.
Hi Loretta. They are Sempervivum flowers, the flowers of the plant in the third photo. The third photo is how the plant looks most of the time. When it flowers, it sends up a tall flower-stalk topped by several of those flowers.
