Succulent beauty…

These dainty flowers appear sporatically on the otherwise deep green succulant shrub, Carissa macrocarpa. Depending upon the shrub’s height this particular one is either known as Natal Plum or Boxwood Beauty. Sily me doesn’t recall the subject’s height today seen on my morning walk.

The majority of the shrub has these smooth, thick leaves. It is growing season for this plant as evident by the new, red tinted leaves emerging from the tops of each branch. Copyright 2020 Pamela Breitberg
It is not unusual for Carissa macrocarpa to overlap a petal or two causing one’s petal count to be inaccurate. Copyright 2020 Pamela Bretiberg
