Southern California landscapers have always embraced xeriscaping (landscaping with drought-tolerant plants). Sometimes it’s a challenge for them to add to color to their desert landscaping. But the Flapjack Succulent is a surprisingly colorful option. It’s quite sculptural, too.
I photographed this one in front of a Mexican restaurant. When I cropped in tightly, the plant became a natural work of art.
It also reminded me of rainbow sherbet in summer.
