This gallery contains 2 photos. The “candy corn”-coloured buds of the tropical succulent sempervivum (aka hen-and-chicks, liveforever) are so pretty! Photographed at the Secret Garden of Boundary Bay on July 16.
And here is the parent plant. This particular variety is known as echeveria elegans (Mexican snowball), and a common sight in rock gardens. Their roseate shape remind me of stone roses!
