MY ROCK SUCCULENT


I have had this "rock succulent" for many years.  And it tells a story every Easter.  For the entire year it looks like a rock ~ in this case two rocks.



But every year during the "Easter" week, out of the rock bursts forth a little sunshine bloom.  It is such a picture of the tomb that Jesus was buried in and on Easter morning ~ the Rose of Sharon, our Lord and Savior came out of that rock tomb.

I have shared it in the past, but wanted my new followers to see my special "Easter Rock".

Have you ever had one of these?

  1. That is a cool "rock" plant.
    How does it know which week is going to be Easter week?

  4. That's really mysterious, as Easter does not come at the same time every year!

  5. I have never saw this plant before, it is so unusual and to think it just blooms at Easter makes it all the more special!!!

  6. Have never seen one before, but I think it's something I could probably grow. I pretty much have a black thumb. LOL
    It's beautiful when it blooms. If I want to purchase one what is it's correct name and can it be in the cold during the winter like we have?

    1. Well I did google it and found it's actual name is Pleiospilos split rock. Origin is So. Africa. I guess you would have to check out nurseries to see if they have them. At least you will have the right name for it.. it is a succulent. Good Luck. Let me know if you find one. They do multiply.
