A while back I did some yard work for my neighbor that lives behind me. She is almost 90 years old and enjoys gardening very much. She has tons of cool plants in her yard. My neighbor gave me a pot full of succulent cactus that I have not yet identified. I like this perticular cactus because it does not have any thorns on it. It also ranges in color from a green to a pinkish red color depending on the amount of sun it gets. I put together a few pots with this cactus and other succulents. While I was outside yesterday I noticed a red flower on the cactus. I have never seen a flower like this before. It is a deep red and the tips curl back behind the flower. Here are some pictures of my succulent pot with a White Teddy Bear Succulent and the unknown cactus succulent with some cool ground cover. The first picture is the pot my neighbor gave to me.
If you can identify this succulent please let me know, thanks.
