I found these beautiful blooms on my porch and could not ignore them. The delicate pink tones next to the leathery dusty blue green leaves are very dramatic. I am not a successful gardener, but these plants thrive on neglect. The only care I give it is to cover it up when our winter cold fronts come through.
As lovely as it looks, beware, it is covered in thorns and spikes and will bite you without warning. Hmmmmm, maybe that is why I tend to stay away from it!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COURTNEY!!
