Very handsome. Perhaps contrast will improve with time. Another striking sp. that is underutilized in dry landscapes, IMO.

Thanks, not much to look at, but it sure comes in handy during summer. Funny, doesn't look like much, but there at least 100 potted plants shown above.

Can you see S. pinguicula in 005.jpg? I checked a couple days ago, and it is now safely rooted in.

I thought I might have seen it! Front-ish left? Awesome that it's already rooted. Did you pot it with some of the stilts exposed? It was growing with almost all of its roots below the soil in its previous pot. I've heard different things about whether or not the stilt roots will tolerate being buried. i figure they're probably fine either way in a good mix. I just love to see the little green roots take off :)

Good eye, right in front of S. arborescence! Never had a stilt-root before, so I don't know what I'm doing and planted it as if I might a non-stilt-root. My plan is to pull it out of that small container next Spring and into something large enough to accommodate some offsetting. That way, offsets can stilt as they see fit. I just figure it's probably a better idea when it's the plant's idea.
