Plant of the Day
Saturday 18 October 2014

In a quiet corner of the impressive Japanese Garden of Chicago Botanic Garden the autumn colour of Lespedeza bicolor (shrubby bushclover) is creating the boundary to this beautiful stone path. In summer this plant species has small pink pea-like flowers. Here simplicity of plant choice is the key to success.

Dinteranthus vanzylii (Caryophyllales - Aizoaceae) is an intriguing solitary or clumping plant with attractive bodies and flowers that is very similar to Lithops in shape and colors but with no apparent dormant period.
The body is formed by two succulent leaves almost fully united, up to 4 cm tall and is sunken in the ground for most of the leaf length. The leaf pair forming a cone or a funnel with the leaf tips broad, flat, but sometime with a thin horny keel near the fissure. It is chalky white to clear paste or greyish with irregular red or brownish markings and dots.
As Lithops this species is also native to the Cape province, South Africa.
