For many weeks in late spring or early summer, it becomes covered with lemon yellow daisy-like flowers that are highly attractive to bees. These open in the morning and close in the afternoon, with new blossoms emerging each day.

This native of eastern South Africa naturally inhabits rocky screes on mountainsides where conditions are both cold and dry. So, sunny locations with average to poor, sharply...

(Mount Kilimanjaro Groundsel)

This shrubby succulent offers a great mass of blue-green color from leaves in tufts. It is a form of an arborescent, or tree-like species native to Kenya, where it grows on Mount Kilimanjaro, hence its name. There, the long, hot, dry season is tempered by the high altitude. This is why this plant is indeed drought-tolerant but not as vigorous in very hot, inland regions. In the wild, this plant grows taller than a human. In cultivation it is much smaller. It produces woody, shaggy stems topped by...

Fine feeder roots seek decaying organic matter collected in the crotches of trees or pockets between rocks. In these places...
