Friday Photos–Plants with Unusual Characteristics

Tall Hens and Chicks

A friend gave my mother some succulent plants commonly called “hens and chicks”. One grew exceptionally tall, about a foot high. (It is in the bottom part of the picture, in the middle, with what looks like a head on the top.)

These houseplants, commonly referred to as “snake plants” around here, don’t usually bloom in our area, though I understand that in warmer climates they bloom regularly. Years ago one summer was unusually hot and humid, and to our surprise, the snake plants bloomed.
