Around the Garden: Lithops

Living Stone, Lithops species. Lithops are called Living Stones because, when not in bloom, they look just like stones! This Lithops was in bloom in the yard a few days ago. The flower appeared to only last a few hours but what a display while it lasts! A few hours seem like too short a time for a bee to find and pollinate the flowers. If they do, however, there is pollen gallore!
