DON’T prune your climb-
ing roses too drastically,
so that — like children perpet-
ually controlled and punished
— they lose all charm and
individuality.

Captivating Cactus and Striking Succulents - 39 in a series - Trachyandra

The trachyandra is an exotic plant that you would love to own. Its spiral leaves are attractive and make anyone fall in love with the plant instantly. Its origin can be traced to a genus of plants similar to Albuca. The albuca genus has over 100 species, most of which can be found in South Africa. However, the majority of the trachyandra species are from the Western Cape of Africa.

Trachyandras are perennials and have very fleshy leaves which are sometimes hairy. They are mainly small and shrub-like. Their leaves are springy and very unique. Sometimes, they have white star-shaped flowers, All these unique features make them a desirable option for collectors. — Planted Shack

Trachyandra is a genus of plant in the familyAsphodelaceae, subfamily Asphodeloideae,[2] first described as a genus in 1843. It is native to eastern and southern Africa, as well as to Yemen and Madagascar. Many of the species are endemic to South Africa.[1][3][4]  Wikipedia

Interesting Plant: Potentilla fruticosa ‘Goldfinger’

Interesting Plant: Potentilla fruticosa ‘Goldfinger’

Interesting Plant: Potentilla fruticosa 'Goldfinger'

The ‘Goldfinger’ will add a long-lasting splash of colour to your garden as the flowers are a vivid buttery yellow colour and appear from May to October. This hardy plant is great for costal locations and its dense and bushy habit makes it the perfect choice for a border. The foliage is pinnate in shape and has a lovely dark grey green colour to it. Plant this shrub alongside other potentillas like the ‘Red Lady’ to enjoy contrasting flowering colours. — Mail Order Trees

Discovered this via the article 13 unique and interesting plants to grow in your garden on the Greener Living Blog. There are quite a few plants I will highlight here in future posts. — Douglas

Potentilla /ˌptənˈtɪlə/[1] is a genus containing over 300[2] species of annualbiennial and perennial herbaceous flowering plants in the rose familyRosaceae. They are usually called cinquefoils in English. Potentilla are generally only found throughout the northern continents of the world (holarctic), though some may even be found in montane biomes of the New Guinea Highlands. Several other cinquefoils formerly included here are now separated in distinct genera – notably the popular garden shrub P. fruticosa, now Dasiphora fruticosa.

Some species are called tormentils, though this is often used specifically for common tormentil (P. erecta). Others are referred to as barren strawberries, which may also refer to P. sterilis in particular, or to the closely related but not congeneric Waldsteinia fragarioides. — Wikipedia
