This blog is dedicated to plants from desert regions around the world as well as plants that have adapted to withstand arid conditions, but do not occur in real deserts. Many of the plants are found in arid semi-desert regions. There will be a greater emphasis on succulent plants, but others will also be included. This blog deals with desert plants of the Americas, Africa, Arabia and others. We are situated in South Africa and South African plants are likely to feature more dominantly. The pictures taken are from our private botanical desert garden at Leopoort near Oudtshoorn, from plants in nature, as well as other collections.

Ceropegia fimbriata subspecies geniculataCeropegia fimbriata subspecies geniculata in habitat near Oudtshoorn. Photographer: Gerhard Marx.

First collected by A.J.Joubert 1973 in the Van Wyksdorp district, it was described by R.A. Dyer as Ceropegia geniculata. It is now regarded as a subspecies of Ceropegia fimbriata. Because of their growing habit, often entangled in bushes, Ceropegias are not easy to find in the wild.
