When It Gets Hot...

On Saturday, for the date of June 29, Austin set a new high temperature of 108 degrees.  So, obviously, it was the perfect time to plant some succulents into pots!

I filled a narrow, rectangular pot with Aloe deltoideodonta on the left, Silver Dollar Plant (Dudleya brittonii 'Super White') in the center and Gasteraloe 'Flo' on the right (have not been able to find any online references for the latter).

A small round pot received Gasteria bicolor var. carspetosain in the front, Variegated Indian Corn Cob (Euphorbia mammillaris var. variegata) on the left, Stapelia incomparabilis (very little online information) in the back and a variegated Sedum species on the right (can anyone identify?).

I added Tiger Jaws (Faucaria tigrina) to the pot already containing Golden Tooth Aloe (Aloe perfoliata) as that Aloe has a tendency to lean outwards, leaving most of the pot looking empty.  Hopefully the Tiger Jaws will fill in (and I like the matching toothy appearance).

This squarish pot seemed to compliment Flapjack Plant (Kalanchoe thyrsiflora) very nicely.

The pot includes a couple of Ice Plants (Delosperma congestum) which will hopefully survive under the broad leaves of the Flapjack Plant.
