  • This looks like it belongs in the sea, but it’s a cactus flower,  Caralluma acutangula, found in parts of Africa. 
It’s used as an appetite suppressant in medicine, but also made in to chutney in India. Factoid of the day.

  • Help please! Can any of my floral followers enlighten me? I bought this gorgeous, tender, twining climber last year and in typical fashion have lost the label. It came into flower in the greenhouse just before Christmas and is now looking beautiful. Any ideas? #plantidentification #climber #purpleflowers #gardening #houseplants #greenhouse #garden #botany #horticulture #flowersofinstagram @rhswisley @kewplantsman
  • I think I’ve broken these in now. Not necessarily designed for safari, but they’ve excelled. Here they are in London and Samburu. Thanks for my Christmas present Lulu. Xxx

  • There’s so much to enjoy in a tropical garden. This hotel does it beautifully, I love the planted up dugout. So much symmetry in the plants too. #casuarina #cone #tree #aloe #succulents #dugout #design #decor #palmtrees #travellerspalm #symmetry #landscapedesign #tropical #gardening #hotel #plants #plantphotography @theoceanspalodge @redsavannahhq
