The standard Gibbosum is a low growing solitary cactus... This beauty is the crested form of Gymnocalycium Gibbosum. One of the more fascinating examples of a crested Gymnocalycium out there it ranges from deep glaucous-green dark olive green brown or grey-black in colour. Discoidal in form (meaning shaped like a disc) it becomes more elongated over time eventually growing anywhere from 10-25 cm tall and up to 12 cm in diameter.  www.manplants.com.au

This is Ritsurin Koen a Japanese "strolling" garden built by the local Daimyo (feudal lords) over a 100 years starting sometime in the 1620s. It's pretty amazing covering 75 hectares with 13 landscaped hills 6 large ponds and numerous stone arrangements. This picture only shows you a small corner of the garden but gives you a pretty good idea just how pretty it is. Makes me want to go back to Australia and start pushing boulders together to make small hills and planting maple trees…

Walking into this bamboo grove is otherworldly for an Aussie not used to seeing so much of the stuff. It just seems to go on forever. One thing that you'll appreciate is the way the light moves through the trees as the wind blows it's like being submerged under the surface of a green ocean.. Photos just cant capture the magic of this place www.manplants.com.au

Opuntia Papyracantha A member of the Opuntia family Papyracantha has quite a few other scientific names. but the common one is paper spine cactus. It gets the nickname from those broad conspicuous flattened spines which are not spines at all but thin ribbon like processes which fold over at the slightest push. These flattened spines vary greatly as to their colour markings and length which is partly the cause of so many names for the species. One thing you have to watch our for with Opuntia…

Echeveria Cuspidata Zaragozae  Zaragozae is a member of the Cuspidata Echeveria species along with Cuspidata itself and Cuspidata Gemmula. It's a looker with long bluish-green oblanceolate leaves with purplish-red mucro..... oblanceolate? mucro? What the deuce? Time for a quick plant science lesson! When it comes to referring to the shape of leaves oblanceolate describes leaves that are 'lance' shaped with the thin end at the base/stem. Mucro is the abruptly tapering point (or in some case a…
