Lithops

Lithops (Living Stones)

Lithops are to be found growing half-submerged in very dry areas of Southern Africa. They strongly resemble spotted and mottled pebbles, hence their popular name. With age they form fine clusters. Their large, daisy-like flowers, often produced when the plants are quite small, are either white or yellow. They are autumn-flowering.
