Stegosaurs back
E. Spencer Toy

Stegosaurs back

It’s called a slipper plant, but we think that the flower-like bracts of this Pedilanthus bracteatus look alarmingly like the back of a stegosaurs. Though it’s native to Mexico, the long, arching branches and minimal amount of leaves make this whole plant look so foreign—like it’s dropped down from another planet.

To grow: Slipper plant is a succulent. It needs quick draining soil, full sun, and is hardy down to 25°.
