Lithop Landscaping Plants
Landscaping plants are vary. One of the most popular landscaping plants is succulents. There are several variety of succulents. One example is lithops. Lithops, or the living stone plant, is an unusual succulent whose leaves resemble two greenish rocks sitting next to each other. These long-lived plants make a unique and interesting choice for outdoor landscaping. Because lithops look so much like small stones, they can blend in very well with their surroundings if they are planted among rocks or gravel. This camouflage technique protects them from being eaten by animals, which adds to their longevity and reduces the amount of maintenance they require. Don’t be fooled into thinking that lithops aren’t interesting to look at. Their intricate surface patterns and the flowers they produce once a year make them visually delightful, indoors or out. In fact, if they are cared for, they can become even more interesting to look at as houseplants than they are in the wild.
