    Nice sharp close-up of this flower. Orbea, eh? Hmmm.

    Got one of these flowers given to me here in
    South Texas (USA) area. This person has a plant and was blooming. Very unusual I might say. Asked her to give me a cutting.

    I have had one of these plants for four years and have been trying to find out exactly what it is. It has bloomed every year since I received it as a cutting. This fall a pod-like ‘bloom’ has replaced the flower. It looks like a bean pod, about 8 inches long and tapered. It has a seam running from top to bottom. Can anyone tell me what this is? A second ‘pod’ about 3 inches long has started as well, though at this time it looks quite different than the first.

    Hi folks of interest I have collected this species as a slow spreading invasive in central New South Wales, Australia, originating from cultivated plants at a now abandoned quarry in semi-arid country, I assume it may naturalise in semi-arid to arid parts of North America too

    I have this plant in my sun parlour in Edinburgh, I talk to this plant and it has responded with three more beautifual flowers.
    Their exquisite design thrilled me. My friend has taken several pictures of them. Very pleased to know its history.
